> Barnes & Noble is allowing us to sell their Madeline doll - made
> exclusively for their stores - to our Braille Book Club members!

> tactile drawing of Madeline. Adapted from Ludwig Bemelman's original
> drawings, first published in 1939, the Madeline doll comes dressed for
> adventure in the character's signature blue coat and yellow hat. By
> comparing the 3D doll to the tactile drawing of Madeline in the book,
> your child can begin to understand how pictures are composed. It's also
> a must-have addition to any child's doll collection!
> Bring out Madeline every time you read the book together!
