History/Provenance: Bright Sights: Learning to See was first produced by the American Printing House for the Blind (APH) in 1985. It contained two levels of materials, sensory and perceptual, which were also available separately. APH research scientist Sheri Moore served as project director for Bright Sights. The product underwent various revisions and, in 2002, was "completely overhauled" and replaced with a new kit called Let's See. This guidebook was transferred to the APH Museum from the APH Research Department.
