Why Connect Young Readers to Large Print?

With 16-point font, expanded line spacing, and fewer words per page, large print is a more accessible reading format proven to help students improve reading skills, like decoding and fluency.

In a national study conducted by Project Tomorrow®, 64 percent of elementary school students and 52 percent of middle school students said their reading comprehension skills improved while reading large print.

Implement large print as a simple literacy solution to help your students grow more confident in their reading skills and enjoy reading more.

Lotus Bloom and the Afro Revolution

Recommended for Grades 4–6

Lotus Bloom just wants to express herself—with her violin, her retro style, and her fabulous hair. But when Lotus is set to take her talent to a new school of the arts, her best friend, Rebel, thinks she should protest. Why should this fancy new school get all the funding and pull the brightest kids out? Then when boys throw paper airplanes into Lotus’s afro, she finds herself in trouble for a dress-code violation. Should Lotus stay quiet and risk her beloved hair or risk everything to fight back?
