Tori Struggles to Read

Tori is a little red panda who loves to bake with her grandma, Pandma.

Pandma gave Tori her treasured cookbook with yummy recipes to bake and share her tasty treats with her friends.

There's one problem. Tori never told anyone that she struggled to read. How will she read her Pandma's cookbook?

Everything changed when she met Grant the Jigsaw Giraffe and his friends. Asking for help and working with mentors became the key to her success.

Dyslexia-Friendly Font

Our book features an easier to read dyslexia font.

People who struggle with reading often swap, rotate and flip letters without noticing -- creating a problem in which some letters are too similar to each other. 

Dyslexie font is designed so that every letter is unique in its own form. 

Special thanks to graphic designer Christian Boer for allowing his font to be used in Grant's book.  Boer has dyslexia himself and designed the font to improve his reading life.
