We are all different. We all have our strengths and our weaknesses, but sometimes our weaknesses provide us with hidden strengths. Iris was born blind, or at least she had limited vision. Because of her blindness, she was the last of the litter to be adopted. This made Iris sad, but when she was adopted, she found herself in a home with a large gray cat who already ruled the roost. The cat, Atlas, was relieved to find no threat from the blind puppy. In fact, Iris didn’t even bark. So the two became close friends, each helping the other, sharing what strengths and talents they had to assist where the other needed help.

Beginning with a powerful quote from Helen Keller, “The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart,” author Inga Eissmann Buccella weaves a charming story about a blind puppy. Iris – A Blind Puppy - Sees the World is a picture book all about differences and sharing and accepting differences. Told in third person narrative, the story focuses on two characters: the dog, Iris, and the cat, Atlas. They both have their unique characteristics, which are clearly revealed, and they both show an inner strength, an inner power to love despite their differences. The book is colorfully illustrated, which helps carry the story along. The plot moves forward naturally, revealing the two characters' similarities and differences, one at a time. For example, while Atlas can do his business in the litter box, Iris quickly learns that she must do hers outside. And, while Atlas prefers to hunt live mice, Iris likes to chew on a rawhide bone. A charming story.

Although this picture book may be read to the very young, it is enjoyed by all ages.
Additionally, young school age children may read it to themselves.

All copies are autographed.
