Chatterbooks: helping younger readers with dyslexia

‘I like getting to pick books and showing off my acting skills! I like playing ’just a minute’ Hannah, Chatterbooks member

Our very popular Chatterbooks Group for  P4-7 children with dyslexia meets once a month in the Central Children’s Library.

We have lots of fun with stories and words. There is always time for reading together in small groups, playing some crazy games and exploring stories together. Usually we make A LOT of noise!

Email wendy.pearson@edinburgh.gov.uk or call 0131 242 8022 if you or someone you know would like to join us. We start up again on Tuesday 26th August, 6.00 – 7.30pm

‘I really enjoy helping with chatterbooks, it’s such a happy environment! It’s incredibly rewarding to work towards engaging the group in reading. It’s amazing to see the transition in going from struggling and disliking reading, to becoming involved and choosing books to take away and read in their free time!’ Ali, volunteer.

‘I love chatterbooks! It’s great because I get to play and meet others who need extra time to read, like me. I like the books and hearing the stories too’. Charlotte, Chatterbooks group member.
