Subject: [bct] Suggestions Needed

I am working with a deaf blind man who is a very limited Braille user.
Well, let's say he can read about two words a minute in Grade 1 Braille.
He had someone from Humanware talk him into buying a BrailleNote PK, and
now he hardly can do anything with it because his Braille is so slow.
He would like me to find some simple childrens books in Grade 1 that he
could read on his BrailleNote to practice improving his Braille speed.  

Look folks I am not a Braille instructor, but I know that my Braille
reading speed improved greatly when I started using my Braille Lite 40
every day, and reading Star Trek books in Braille.

So, any one with any ideas where I could find some books for him that I
could put on a memory card and he could read them on his BrailleNote PK?
