Collection: Reluctant Readers

We provide a wide selection of dyslexia-friendly books that are specifically designed to help children and students enjoy reading. Our extensive range of dyslexia books includes books by Barrington Stoke – a range of accessible, enjoyable, and unpatronising short books for children and students who are either dyslexic, struggling to read, or simply reluctant to sit down with a book.



What are the Best Books for Reluctant Readers?

Most books tend to match children’s interest age and reading age. However, this can be a problem for children who struggle to read or who are simply reluctant to read. The Barrington Stoke range cover fictional and factual books. These books are fun, interesting and children are keener to read because of this. One of our favourites is Survival in Space! 

These books also benefit children with Visual Stress. 

What is a Reluctant Reader?

A reluctant reader is someone who doesn’t show muchinterest in reading. They can be an able reader who has switched off from reading for various reasons, such as, boredom, disinterest in reading material offered, poor attention span, a general disinterest for books. For others, being reluctant to read is often a result of people having reading difficulties, like dyslexia or visual stress, which can result in frustration.
