    Seedlings is closed to the public, in accordance with state COVID-19 guidelines. U.S. orders can be placed via the web, phone or fax, but fulfilment & shipping may be slower than normal.

    Please continue to register for these special programs and we will process them as soon as we can. Thank you for your patience & understanding!

  • The Rose Project
    World Book Encyclopedia Articles in braille. A free service for visually-impaired students in grades 1-12.

  • The Book Angel Program for V-I Children
    Through this program, we have given children with vision loss over 74,000 free braille books since 2002! Each visually-impaired child (0-21) in the U.S. can receive 4 free braille books per calendar year thanks to the Book Angel Program! Register now for your 2022 books! (Please re-register each year.)

  • The TVIP Program for 2022
    Certified Teachers of the Visually Impaired in the U.S. may order 4 free 1-volume braille books from Seedlings each calendar year! Order here and use the code TVIP22 as your Purchase Order Number.
    Please remember that Seedlings is a small nonprofit organization with limited resources. Consequently, please do not order more than one copy of 9817 The SENSEsational Alphabet Book. Thank you.

    With schools being closed, we understand that it might be best if you use your home address for your order.
    Please be patient. We are very excited to send you these free books, but we will need to produce & pack them when we are not busy with paid orders.
    And please understand that by ordering these free books, you are agreeing to be on our email list for our quarterly newsletters & other updates. Happy Reading!

  • The Adopt-a-Reader Program
    Children with vision loss who live in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, or Ohio, may be enrolled in Seedlings' Adopt-a-Reader Program. Once we match you with one of our generous donors, your child will receive a gift certificate for $100 for free Seedlings' books! It's easy to enroll:
    Just download the AAR Enrollment Form and send it in with a photo of your child so our donors can learn a little about their "adopted reader." (Only first names will be used and your contact information will not be shared.) For more information, contact Seedlings at or call 800-777-8552 x307.

  • Donate $100 to "adopt" a reader
    A $100 donation gives 10 free books to a child in need!
    Thank you in advance for your generous donation!
