A selection of children’s picture books in giant print and Braille is now available at Wrexham Library. This collection of fabulous books is available to borrow free of charge to all library members - titles by famous authors such as Julia Donaldson, Anthony Browne, Nick Butterworth and Lucy Cousins are represented.
The font is a gigantic 75 point and braille is also included. Each book is beautifully illustrated. The design enables braille or large print readers to read without obscuring the text or illustrations and therefore gives children and adults the opportunity to read together, forming both educational and social relationships - the biggest contributing factor to children’s early years’ learning of language, confidence and social interaction. The most likely users of this format are adults or children with macular conditions, maybe cataracts and other sight conditions that affect the macular and therefore reading. Another group is people with learning disabilities who require giant print and illustrations to support their reading. The design will also assist people with conditions that affect co-ordination and dexterity.
