Some children need a lot of help if they’re ever going to learn to read. But what’s the best way to help them? How can you get your child to read if he or she just doesn’t like books, has reading difficulties or dyslexia? Come along to David’s and listen to two specialists, Patience Thomson and Pete Johnson. They will offer advice from how to cope with the stress you feel about your child’s reading to choosing the right book f...or your child.

Patience Thomson is the founder of Barrington Stoke, publishers of books for struggling readers. She has discussed all kinds of reading concerns and solutions with the parents and carers of the hundreds of children with reading difficulties she has taught over 30 years. In her book, 101 Ways to get your Child To Read, Patience shares the tried and tested tips that have helped others.

Pete Johnson is the award-winning author of the Calderdale Children's Book of the Year 2006 and the Sheffield Children's Book Award 2005. Pete has worked as a teacher and a film critic for Radio 1. His titles for Barrington Stoke include Diary of an (Un)Teenager, How Embarrassing Is That?, The Best Holiday Ever and Runaway Teacher.
