Book design for Children's reading considers the factors that have influenced the design of books for teaching young children to read, including educational directives and reports, views about legibility methods of teaching reading, the availability of typographic resources and the economic constraints faced by publishers.

The book has numerous illustrations including an annotated timeline showing examples of reading books published in each decade from the 1890s to the end of the twentieth century.
