Books recommended for less robust readers aged 3 to 13

Beanstalk, the charity that recruits, trains and supports volunteers to provide one-to-one literacy support in early years settings and primary schools to children who have fallen behind with their reading, has collated a list of recommended books – 40 of them!

It’s a list that includes books published recently, and some many years ago – a lovely combination.

We’re especially pleased to see The Covers of my Book are Too Far Apart (and other grumbles) by Vivian French, illustrated by Nigel Baines (published by Barrington Stoke), amongst the selection.
