How to help your child read in English

Reading in English with your child can be challenging but the benefits are worth it. Make the most of your child’s Helbling Young Reader with this guide full of ideas for sharing stories together.


Accessible to all

Reading difficulties such as dyslexia are often very sensitive to particular typefaces. By carefully choosing our fonts and designing the text layout we ensure that our stories are accessible to as broad an audience as possible.

By using thicker paper, a plain evenly spaced font, wider line-spacing and carefully calibrated line lengths we can significantly reduce the visual stress experienced by many readers who suffer from reading difficulties.
