The Reading Agency/Barrington Stoke Partnership announced

The Reading Agency is a national charity promoting reading amongst children and adults. They have recently announced a new partnership with Barrington Stoke, an independent publisher which aims to break down barriers which could prevent children from reading. These barriers could range from dyslexia to visual stress or a reluctance to read.

Barrington Stoke celebrates its fifteenth birthday in 2013 and the new partnership will involve initiatives at  libraries to support families with children who struggle with reading or are reluctant to read.

One of these initiatives will be a day of events in libraries in northern England with author Tom Palmer. Tom’s books about football and rugby are highly-regarded and he has written a new book for Barrington Stoke, Ghost Stadium. There will also be special packs produced to support dyslexic readers as well as a toolkit to assist librarians in using Barrington Stoke titles and information for parents on tackling reading issues.
