Lou's Diary
A little prince, not quite like the others
  Hello, I am a little boy who only sees right with his heart...
Which doesn't make my parent's daily life any easier. So I'm blind and different (mentally speaking).

Lou and the wind


Welcome to Lou's blog

This blog was born in french during autumn 2003 and is now progressively being translated in your language.

New articles will therefore appear on a regular basis.


... my apologies to the people who hadn't understood this yet, all articles on this website are created and written by myself (his dad).

Lou is currently unable to do it,, just like he is to this day unable to grasp the concept of a "computer", "internet", or to focus for a long period of time on a conversation. Only time will tell us if we manage to integrate him completely in the world in which he lives.

Therefore all stories, despite relating actual facts, are obviously biased by my interpretation of his behavior. But having known him for over five years, I don't think I'm getting it wrong.

Thank you to the "Roi Baudoin" foundation ( "Parcours hors pistes" ). The new design, hosting and translations were partially made possible by their financial support.
Many thanks to Marco Pappalardo et Laetitia Bouet for the translation.

75. ... I read !

Livres tactiles LDQROk I won't be reading braille any time soon (maybe even never, given my "mental confusion"),
but, for years, I've been reading books occasionally (mostly with mommy).
From day one she has looked for tactile books available for all children ( such as : baby mouse who needs help finding his mommy back (and her long tail), and meets a whole lot of other animals, whose (fake) skin you can touch.
Unfortunately there aren't a lot of books like that.

Good thing the school has a play area and books.
Even better, there is a publishing house (in France), "LES DOIGTS QUI REVENT" (the fingers that dream), who is doing wonderful books with the means at their disposal. Every book is hand made and sold at a price which is reasonable (about 20 euros / 25 dollars) and most of all ridiculous compared with the work they do.
And that's how, thanks to them, I was able to touch the house of each little pig, feel the wolf in the cauldron, compare, just like Goldilocks, the chairs, the bowls and the beds of papa bear, mama bear, and baby bear.
Even though I used to not like it too much (but you already know that if you're a fan),
I don't like "touching", nowadays I almost enjoy it !

Your comments

Hello Lou! I absolutely love to read! Those books of yours sound wonderful. I'm glad you like touching more now. It's a great way for you to learn. I would like to think that someday you could learn Braille but I know that it might be too much. If you like to listen to stories you could try books on tape. Hope you are happy and well! Kisses!!!!
