AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Sarah, Misty and Scribbles' journey to the house by the sea aims to raise awareness and a better understanding about vision impairment in younger children. The story has been written from a child's perspective. Sarah the ragdoll, Misty the rabbit, and Scribbles the teddy bear, all have a vision impairment. Sarah is missing an eye, Misty's eyes look fine in outward physical appearance, and Scribbles has scratches on his eyes. Some of the other toys make fun of them because they do not understand what it means not to be able to see properly. The conclusion of the story is that Sarah, Misty and Scribbles are able to join in the games with the other toys. They feel confident and safe to explore the new house by the sea, which has now become for them a safe and happy place to be. "Sarah, Misty and Scribbles' journey to the house by the sea" is a story that can be read to children by both parents and educational figures' (Publication summary)
