Spotlight on Books for Dyslexia – Published by Barrington Stoke


Barrington Stoke publishes super-readable children’s books that break down barriers that can stop kids getting into reading. The short fiction books bring together the best of children’s authors and illustrators in the UK with a host of unique accessibility features for children who have dyslexia or visual stress.

The books are high-low, which means that the content is appropriate to the actual age of the readers but the text has been edited to suit a lower reading age. The reading ages (RA) are 6, 6.5, 7 and 8, and 8+, and the interest ages (IA) range from 3-5 to teen. These can be found on the back of the books by the barcode.

Here at Wokingham Libraries, we have lots of these excellent books on our shelves. In order for you to find them easily, we have placed blue dots on the spines. Please ask any member of staff for help in locating these books.

We are always adding to our collection. These titles have just come in…
