Douglas County Libraries (DCL) has expanded its collection of bestselling and popular large-print titles for children and young adults. The easy-to-read format is helpful for reluctant readers and those learning English or struggling with developmental delays or diagnoses like ADD/ADHD or dyslexia.
Large Print = Big Advantages
Larger print boosts comprehension and fluency for readers of all ages—and that leads to increased reading confidence and enthusiasm. Because there are fewer words per page, readers can more easily process information and sound out words. For kids and teens, large print can play an important role in motivating them to become better, lifelong readers.
The books in DCL’s expanded large-print collection look the same as their standard font editions. They’re the same size, feature the same cover art, and fit into lockers and backpacks, easing any concerns about social stigmas.
