Four Little Corners

This tactile adaptation of Jérôme Ruillier's print book, Quatre Petit Coins De Rien Du Tout, is about what it means to belong and to have access. The friends of Little Square, all circles with varying textures, fit easily through the round school door but Little Square cannot join them. Following the principle of "where there is a will there's a way," they suggest Little Square alter himself (fold, turn, stretch, twist!) to fit through the door. At last, but not without some emotion, all finally realize it is the school that must change to fit everyone's needs. As the book's message is shared, children can manipulate the shapes, explore textures, and relate the illustrations to this very meaningful text.

Four Little Corners is produced for APH by the French tactile book publisher, Les Doigts Qui Rêvent (LDQR). Richly textured collage style illustrations with interactive features are visually attractive and have appeal for all young learners as well as adults sharing the books with a child. The illustrations' design is based on research into the needs of tactual learners. Text is provided in large print and contracted Unified English Braille, provided as clear, silkscreened braille of high quality and durability.

LDQR books have been featured in Outstanding Books for Young People with Disabilities, a catalog and exhibit organized by the International Board on Books for Young People (IBBY). IBBY is a non-profit organization representing an international network of people committed to bringing books and children together.
