Reluctant readers

March 30, 2011

We’ve just started a section for reluctant readers as so many people seem to have a problem getting their children off the starting blocks. Once they do get going, they often don’t need too much encouragement to read the next book. One of the best series I have found recently, that are great for getting reluctant readers going is the Jake Cake series, suitable for children aged between 8 and 10 and equally loved by both boys and girls.You can find them here. If you have older children who have not quite found their feet with reading yet, Barrington Stoke have a number of really exciting stories which are suitable for10-14 year olds but have a reading age which is much lower than the child’s chronological age.These books can be found in our “Easy to read” sections, to which we are adding new books all the time.

The Diary of a Wimpy Kid series seems to have captured the interest of a lot of children recently and although suited best to children in the Year 5 and 6 age range, both younger and older readers seem to be enjoying them as well.If you want to take a look inside the book at the actual text (written in comic style format), first click on this link and then on the BUY NOW link.
