Hey, Scott!

Reading with Nichole and trying to work with Nichole's teacher about 
introducing Bookshare to beginning readers, I have a question/proposition.  In 
order to place emphasis on readable text in board books and early reader 
picture books, books that have no other navigation than title, would it be 
acceptable to put book text in bold 16 or 18 pt. and picture descriptions, not 
bolded and in 12 pt?  It would help print "pop" for visual readers (dyspexic 
and kids with PD) and even allow teaching navigation in a more useful and 
functional ways to early readers.  That way a parent reading the book would 
have easy access to all information, but a new reader being introduced to 
reading would have better presentation of age level text.
