Barrington stoke titles

Barrington stoke is an independent publisher helping students make the jump from learning to read to loving to read. A wide selection of titles are held in our libraries. This collection is very useful as the content suits the age of reader while the text suits a lower reading age. Most of these titles are printed on a cream background with a special font to make reading easier.
