The Nature Hearts Education book series offers a quality range of educational books aimed at early readers learning to read or reluctant to read. Available in a sequential set of reader ability levels, they use repetitive text and common sight words. Their real power comes from using locations which are familiar to students in Australia and easily accessible to those on the Sunshine Coast. Children are able to quickly engage with the reading process and able to make a 'text to self' connection between the text and their own life experiences, the valuable first step towards comprehending what they are reading. With the use of Australian School Beginners font instead of other more complicated fonts, early readers are more easily able to recognise letters to assist them in their reading. This is an important point of difference to many mainstream books, which use cluttered font types or those which students may find confusing for some letters. Clearer, simple font types may also assist readers with learning difficulties.
