ABSTRACT: 

In order to better study and design innovative books for low-vision children, the existing problems in book design for them and their demand for book design are analyzed in the research. Meanwhile, relevant researchers have designed three kinds of book models, and their products are verified and assessed.
In this research, field observation, one of qualitative research methods, is used to test the readability of three types of extracurricular books for low-vision children. To be specific, with the help of teachers, reading guidance, interest and ability are assessed successively through three reading forms (individual reading, group discussion and group reading) conducted by visually impaired students. Here are the results as follows.
To begin with, extracurricular books for low-vision children need to be designed in accordance with their cognitive characteristics and reading needs, which helps them boost their reading, language and academic abilities. Then, from the perspective of cognitive psychology, it is proposed that books for visually impaired children should focus on readerfriendliness, cognitive experience and exploration, and book design, thus promoting the development of their reading comprehension.
The results show that the target group is quite satisfied with the readability and functionality of the content and design of the representative books. On the one hand, the enhanced readability of books for low-vision children is able to meet their reading needs; on the other hand, books for low-vision children featuring innovation as well as interaction can also attract ordinary children to read, which has some practical importance.
