Small child touches a tactile globe.

“Wow. So this is what the world looks like!” Three-year-old Kayla Harris of Maryland examines a tactile globe at a breakout session for parents and kids during the 2005 annual parents seminar sponsored by the National Organization of Parents of Blind Children (NOPBC). The seminar was one of many activities sponsored by the NOPBC during the week-long convention of the National Federation of the Blind held in Louisville, Kentucky, from July 2 though July 8, 2005.
