Children are often curious about blindness, but are told that it is impolite to pose their questions to a blind person. Not so, says Sally Hobart Alexander, who lost her sight at the age of twenty-six. In this informative book, illustrated with photos of Sally and her family, the author answers thirteen thought-provoking questions that children have asked her, for example, "If your eyes don't see, do they work at all?" "How do you write?" and "Has being blind changed you?"

Do You Remember the Color Blue: The Questions Children Ask about Blindness based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
A wonderful book of frequently asked questions about blind people, and the very honest and detailed answers of the author.
A very interesting and unique book. Mrs. Alexander shares feelings about what it was like to go blind and answers very specific questions both technical and personal, like how does a blind person use a cane and how she met her husband. The book is refreshing in its honesty and not at all corny. It can help children understand what is like for a person to become physically disabled. It shows an example of someone who adapted well to a handicap.
