Specialist books (click on the headings for the links)
Dyslexic Readers These books have been specifically designed for dyslexic readers; they have a dyslexic-friendly layout, typeface and paperstock.
First Chapter Books These are great books for young children who have just launched into independent reading. Or, they're great for adult bedtime stories for those who are first learning to read.
Reluctant Readers Year 5 and 6
Reluctant Readers Year 3 and 4 These books are great for hooking in readers that aren't always interested in reading.
Great Non-Fiction For readers that have a passion for information and knowledge, these books have interesting facts and strong visual elements to keep young readers engaged, informed and entertained.
Diversity & Inclusion Making a variety of diverse children's books available is important to every child. There are some wonderful stories in this list which feature a wide range of voices to help children to develop empathy and inclusion, as well as build a more realistic view of the world.
