Here at Barrington Stoke, we have long been committed to print books because of our super-readable mission and the various accessibility features we use. But we do have a small selection of fantastic titles available on Kindle and in light of the current situation and for all those now stuck at home, we’ve slashed our prices down to just 99p! We hope you might be able to find a fantastic new read among these super stories.
In light of the current situation we thought it might be handy to pull together all of the free resources that we offer all year round. From reading guides to colouring in sheets, our Young Editors Scheme to author videos, there’s something for every age of reader and hopefully we can help you all to power through this uncertain time. We’ll also be sharing and supporting the #UnitedByBooks campaign on social media, where you’ll be able to check out even more teach from home help.
These are strange and extraordinary times we find ourselves in, but even in such trying situations we believe that great stories have an important part to play. Now more than ever, it feels vital to celebrate books and reading. So we hope that we can brighten your day a little and help you escape from the news cycle with a spot of fantastic book news – we are delighted to share that Anthony McGowan’s Lark has been shortlisted for the 2020 Carnegie Medal!

This week on the blog we’re sharing a recent piece from Carnegie-shortlisted author Elizabeth Wein on how much we can really know about WWII and what more she uncovered while researching her most recent novella White Eagles.
