Here at LoveReading4Kids, we want to ensure that every child, however reluctant or struggling a reader he or she is, is given the chance to become a voracious reader. 

We keep this section updated with page-turners we think are perfect for less confident or unenthusiastic readers.

Our recommended reads are from both mainstream and specialist publishers. Specialist publishers tend to focus on titles for readers whose reading age is lower than the interest age so if you have a child who finds reading difficult, or who aren’t yet ready to cope with long books, or who simply don’t enjoy books then try one of these titles - each will be clearly marked with its reading age and interest age. The specialist publisher Barrington Stoke is a past master at convincing reluctant readers that books are cool and is at the forefront of this specialist publishing. Their books are short, sharp and sound, skilfully written by some of the top children’s authors around and edited with real flair. If your child is really reluctant or struggling we would suggest starting off on the titles published by specialist publishers and then move on to the mainstream titles we’ve also selected.  

When a reader is hooked on a story, their reading ability will improve and reading becomes a habit. That’s why books for reluctant readers have to have fabulous, gripping, absorbing stories. We’ve thought long and hard about the selection and we feel every one of the books selected provides a powerful and unputdownable story, even for the most reluctant reader.

Our lists is broken down by age of child. Books that are given two age ranges have a content that is suitable and relevant to a wider age range, but the reading age is shown as the primary age range.

You might also be interested in our Dyslexia-Friendly Super-Readable books,  printed in a special dyslexia-friendly font created to make reading easier, with  accessible layouts and spacing to stop the page from becoming overcrowded and are printed on paper with a gentle tint to help reduce visual stresses. 

The Little Gems series are perfect for reluctant readers with quality stories, short chapters and highly illustrated, and cover a wide range of fiction and non-fiction themes to suit every reader. The reading age is 5-8 but the content is suitable to 7-10 year old dyslexic and reluctant readers.

And the experts at Barrington Stoke have put together a great guide with top tips to help you help your child to love reading - you can download it here.
