So, last quarter I helped teach science to a bunch of 6th graders. Towards the end of the semester they wrote short stories set in the ecosystem we were studying. Since the school is short on computers and I need to get my 20 hours a week to pay the bills, I volunteered to help with text.

I want to know what text you would recommend for stories written by 6th graders. Their target audience is early grade school.

    I don't really know anything about typography, was hoping for some text suggestions that little kids would really like. 6th graders are mostly 11-12 years old.

    early grade school, I'd go with something simple and bold like Arial black at like 14pt or more.

    I've got to make 3 books. If anyone has time to kill and wants to make covers pro-bono that'd be pretty cool. A lot of the stories involve the Wili wili tree or the uhi uhi tree. If you actually are interested and want more info, send me an email.
