Please review the sample, paying special attention to the change in fonts. 

At Birch Books, we know that at this age, readability is key. For this book, we will be using the Lexend Deca font, which is part of a family of fonts designed to enhance and support reading proficiency. 

 

I want my readers to be able to focus on the story, not the shape of the letters. In this book, there are moments where the cat and robot are talking to each other and, like many other books for this age group, there is a lot of dialogue.

 

I thought it might be helpful if each character had their own font style so that readers wouldn’t get confused about who was speaking. Again, each font has been carefully selected to have a simple sans serif design and mostly single-story, primary-style letters. 

​

I am coming to YOU for your expert opinion because I want to make sure that this choice would truly help. If it would NOT help or would make the book needlessly challenging for the reader, I don't want to do it.

​

Please take a look at the sample, then answer the question that follows.

​

Thank you SO MUCH for lending me your expertise!

My question is: should I use these custom fonts for each character or not?
