Literacy is a key factor in student success. It impacts self-esteem, social emotional wellness and academic achievement. Thorndike Press supports literacy in and outside of the classroom by publishing books in large print, which can improve children’s reading skills and reading confidence. With greater comprehension comes greater reading satisfaction; learning to read can then transition to reading to learn. Come learn how large print makes a different for your students.
