Please stop using Fancy Fonts

Dear Picture Book Publishers,

You seem to have taken to the idea that fancy fonts, in curly cursive and beyond, make your books every so much more appealing. In reality, what they do is make the words unreadable for many elementary school students.

Many students don’t study writing cursive until about 5th grade and that, it seems, might soon be a thing of the past. Kids certainly aren’t taught how to read it. Picture books should be accessible to all readers.

Stop being fancy and start being practical.
