Large-print books may aid students' reading comprehension, according to a survey of 3-12th grade students, teachers and librarians by Project Tomorrow on behalf of Gale's Thorndike Press. The large-print books were found to improve reading abilities and students' attitudes about reading. Among the findings:
- 61% of elementary school students said they remembered characters and plots better when reading large print books.
- 48% of high school students said they read more outside of school after experiencing large print books.
- Middle school students reported a 43% reduction in feelings of anxiety about reading when using the large print format.
