Jernigan, Kenneth. Gray Pancakes and Gold Horses. Baltimore, MD: National Federation of the Blind, 1998.
How do blind children learn the details of the hundreds of small daily acts that sighted children learn without even knowing they have done it? 84 p.
Members of the National Federation of the Blind discuss various aspects of being blind. An attorney writes about the importance of learning about body language and others describe how their "educated fingers" make them adept at skills such as sewing.

Short and just a little preachy, but not too much. Several blind people write about certain experiences in their lives, from not knowing whether to shake the head up and down or left and right to mean no, enjoying competitive gymnastics (vault is the hardest apparatus), to sighted people's misconceptions.
