Just Read! Help your child become a keener reader with Barrington Stoke


We know that reading opens doors, engages the imagination, builds confidence and stimulates curiosity. But that doesn't mean the path to reading success is a smooth one.

Parents want to help their children develop the skills of reading, yet many are unsure of how best to support their child, and help them overcome barriers to reading.

We've got together with Larkmead School and would love to invite you to an evening with a specialist publisher for more reluctant readers, Barrington Stoke. They will reveal tips, simple strategies and target books that are proven to help support your child and give them the opportunities to become more successful readers.


Mairi Kidd
Barrington Stoke specialises in publishing super-readable children’s books that break down the barriers that can stop kids getting into reading.

Barrington Stoke MD Mairi Kidd will be joined by bestselling author Anthony McGowan to discuss ways of removing barriers to reading, and helping parents to take confident steps to turn reluctant readers into keener readers.


Anthony McGowan
There will be a chance to ask questions, and browse books from Barrington Stoke from some of their most famous authors, including Michael Morpurgo, Tom Palmer, Chris Bradford, Malorie Blackman, Frank Cottrell Boyce, Julia Donaldson, Alexander McCall Smith and Chris Riddell.

The event takes place at 6.45pm on Thursday, May 5 in the LRC at Larkmead School. The event is free and there will be refreshments available. We really hope you can come – particularly if you’re looking for ideas to encourage reading.

If you would like to come along, please email us as soon as possible to let us know you will be attending.

All children can develop their reading skills, and read to succeed. We hope you can join us!
