About Youth Large Print
Large print is a literacy intervention tool that has the power to enhance your reading program and get kids excited about reading. Thorndike Press books are a similar size and weight as standard print editions and feature a larger font size, fewer words and lines per page, and clearer contrast between text and the background of the paper. This supports improved decoding, tracking, fluency, and comprehension with students reading below and at grade level. See the research >>
