"What a Wonderful World!" is written and illustrated by Kelsey, a grade two student who reads and writes in braille (and a great competitor at the Braille Challenge each year!).  

Kelsey and her family self-published a book of Kelsey's writing and drawings to raise funds for Blind Beginnings. We're looking forward to her next publishing project! 

Consider checking out "It's a Wonderful World" to give your students an example of how, like Kelsey, they are authors! Find it here in the PRCVI Library Catalogue

About the author

Adam Wilton

I have been fortunate to learn and grow with students with visual impairments since 2007, working as a teacher of students with visual impairments (TSVI), Certified Orientation and Mobility Specialist (COMS) and most recently as the Program Manager of PRCVI and ARC-BC. I completed a PhD in Special Education at the University of British Columbia in 2017 where my research focused on the administrative determinants of workloads for itinerant TSVIs.   

One of my favourite aspects of my current role is delivering outreach support to my colleagues and their students from across British Columbia. I've been fortunate to have many exciting adventures in schools and communities across the province and I hope you enjoy following along through #outreaching!

When I'm not on the road, I enjoy learning to play the violin, collecting antique books, and spending time surrounded by trees.
