There is a book called Out of Darkness (The story of Louis Braille) by Russell Freedman. It is about Louis who became blind all the time later, when before he was poked by other sharp materials which is slid away and hit his eye that was bleeding. He became blind later on. Somehow he knew how to do something, but he was admitted to a Blind school, where he learned everything like raised dots to punch and perform as much as he wanted and perform alphabets and by using slate and stylus, but it was believed as a Braille system and invention. Every students were taught in blind school. Louis was somehow graduated. Louis was a good boy and was really good at punching and raising dots. He became teacher at the age maybe upto twenty years old. Maybe he attended the conference and he before knew how to read and write and have books. He was congradulated as the invention for dots and Braille system. Louis was born a long time ago somehow in January 4, 1809. At the end, Louis died of weakness and he died after his birthday. There was a box named 'To be burned without opening.

The theme of the book is that the author is showing everybody how Louis was improved and did the raised dots alphabetical task. It shows how Louis taught others to perform how to do. It is a good book. The book is about the invention of alphabet for the blinds.

I would recommend this book for anybody to see and read. It talks about how Louis was good at his work of raised dots and even punching to form letters and anything. It shows how Louis was somehow brave and talent for his invention that he done throughout his years of being a student.
