The UK charity and provider of audio, braille and large-print books has named it the “I’d miss…” campaign, encouraging people to consider the children’s stories that they would have missed had they been unavailable. According to RNIB, less than 5% of books are available in braille, audio and large print.
As part of the campaign, to mark World Book Day on 3 March, RNIB are encouraging people to post the name of their favourite children’s book on the RNIB Facebook page. Top entries have included classics such as The Magic Faraway Tree collection, The Hobbit, Enid Blyton’s The Malory Towers series, “every book by Roald Dahl” and one entry said “I'd miss every fairy tale that taught me how to dream and to imagine anything possible.”
