"When we were approached by Noah Text to make our books dyslexia-friendly, I was thrilled! I cannot wait to see what a difference we can make working together for these children."
IDAHO FALLS, ID, February 02, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Green Kids Club, Inc. announced today that it is releasing dyslexia-friendly editions of its three best-selling books – Elee and The Shining Star, Grizzly 399, and The Belize Trash Monster. These new versions will be presented with a specialized print called Noah Text®. Noah Text highlights critical word patterns within texts, enabling struggling readers, children with dyslexia, and ESL students to read with increased fluency and stamina – providing them much needed confidence while enhancing their reading skill.
Noah Text allows readers to see sound-parts within words, providing a way for struggling readers to decode and enunciate words that might otherwise be difficult to access. The resulting improvements in reading accuracy and fluency free up cognitive resources that readers can devote to comprehending the meaning of the text, enabling them to truly enjoy reading, which, undoubtedly, is the aspiration for parents and teachers.
Sylvia Medina, President and the primary author of Green Kids Club books, stated, "We at Green Kids Club have always focused on teaching children the importance of preserving our environment but had not considered that our books in their current state were not reaching all children. When we were approached by Noah Text® to make our books dyslexia-friendly, I was thrilled! I cannot wait to see what a difference we can make working together for these children."
"We're extremely excited to collaborate with Green Kids Club. Their mission to teach kids about environmental stewardship is critical, and they do it in such a fun, imaginative way. I can't wait to see Noah Text® in their beautifully illustrated books," said Sarah K. Blodgett, CEO and Founder of Noah Text, LLC.
Noah Text is currently being used successfully in schools and reading clinics with both children and adults. Teachers are finding increased engagement and confidence in reading utilizing Noah Text, and for some students, enabling them to read their very first chapter books.
