All About Color Blindness tells the story of a fourth-grader named Corey, who used to feel stupid when his difficulty with perceiving certain colors caused problems and misunderstandings. But after learning about his CVD, he feels better about himself and now knows how to deal with situations that cause color confusion. Corey's insights are easy to read and very informative for color vision deficient children, as well as for their friends, parents and teachers who want to help.

A different view of the world What does it mean to be “color blind”? Fourth-grade Corey tells us that “color blindness” is not being blind to color but having trouble seeing some colors correctly. He has Color Vision Deficiency, or CVD, which is not a communicable disease but an inherited condition, and explains how his color deficiency caused problems in kindergarten, but along the way he has learned about the special way he sees colors and how to deal with it. This new children's book will help both kids and parents to understand CVD, who has it, how many people have it, how they get it, the kind of problems it might cause, and how to work around it at home, school, and everywhere else. Did you know that one out of every 200 girls has CVD, and one out of every twelve boys has it? All About Color Blindness, which won a Mom’s Choice Award and is endorsed by the nation's leading color vision experts, is easy to understand and scientifically correct, and it has many benefits. Corey realizes that CVD has nothing to do with how smart he is and that he doesn't need to let it get in his way. After learning about his condition, he feels better about himself and now knows how to deal with situations that cause color confusion. The reader will find out about testing for CVD too. All this information will be useful not only for the kids themselves, but also for their parents, teachers, friends, and anyone who wants to help. Author Karen Rae Levine, a former aerospace engineer, software manager and graphic designer, is the mother of a bright and vibrant son with CVD. Illustrator Frank Wells is an artist and designer in the book and board game industries who also has CVD. Corey says, “Color Vision Deficiency isn’t the end of the world. It’s just a different view of it.”
