We’ve waited 8 long months to be able to announce this: our book, Little Bear Sees: How Children with Cortical Visual Impairment Can Learn to See, is finally available! We got it done just in time to bring it with us to the CVI: Visions of Change conference we’ve been at for the last two days. We are thrilled to say that every copy we brought with us had sold out by 11:00 am on the first day of the conference! You can buy your very own copy on Amazon.com or BarnesandNoble.com for $18.00. Within a couple of weeks, we should also have our eBook available for Nook, Kindle, iPad and other popular eReaders for $9.99. At that time, we will also have a PDF version of the book available on our website, also for $9.99.
Little Bear Sees: How Children with Cortical Visual Impairment Can Learn to See is the first book about CVI written by parents, for parents. When we first learned that Lukas had CVI, we wanted to know exactly what CVI is and what we could do to help him, but had a difficult time finding that information. Our book answers those questions in a concise and practical way. At the same time, we talk in depth about our story as well as the stories of three other families who generously agreed to be part of our book. We want you to see real life examples of families who have been able to successfully encourage vision in their children and let you know that you’re not alone.
From the foreword by Dr. Christine Roman-Lantzy:
“Little Bear Sees is a book that provides both information and inspiration. It walks the reader through real family journeys and real family solutions. Parents who read Little Bear Sees will find a partner in their own experiences with the medical and educational challenges. The family stories may seem familiar and comforting.”
We truly hope our book will be a great resource for you and we look forward to hearing your feedback!
