Did you know more than 50 Moons can fit inside Earth? Or that Mount Everest is 10 times higher than the world’s tallest building? Filled with facts that are hard to believe, this book is designed especially for visually impaired readers.
Packed with mind-blowing records and facts from around the world described in both large print and braille, DK Braille: It Can’t be True! also features tactile images for readers to feel what they are reading, from the largest eyeball to the biggest spider.
Through the use of detailed embossing, you can feel the world's largest hailstone (three times larger than a tennis ball!) and a bird so small it can sit on the end of your thumb.
DK Braille: It Can't Be True will keep you entertained and amazed for hours.
