    Probably majority of us understands blindness as a big black image of the world. Countless obstacles and problems, constant challenges, a colourless and with fears intertwined way of life. I admit I felt the same when a doctor diagnosed my son with irreversible condition on his eyes that explains complete blindness. Ignorance about the issue raised fear, darkness and despair. It turned out later that »the only darkness that exists is ignorance« (Shakespeare, s. a.). I turned personal experience to my benefit and learned a lot through the thesis, even though the main purpose was to review offer of picture books for blind and visually impaired children and offer them something that so far was not adapted to their needs. I made three rebus stories of author Anja Štefan and tested them in practice. I tested the quality of product with three different children and with three professional workers. I used observation technique with participation, check list and non-standard focused interview, which ensured the quality of improved author's version of tactile rebus stories. The feedback of participants were positive; children were self-confident, talkative and curious when touching, guessing words and learning about rebus story style, while professional workers were delighted about the idea and interpretation of tactile pictures. The conclusion therefore is that there is still a lot of unadjusted content, which however may become, with good practice, feasible and useful for blind, visually impaired and other children.
