p.134 describes alternate ability adjustments for Skittermanders. The text describing Bookish Skittermanders reads:
"Skittermanders generally receive little formal education; they do not rear their young, and the Veskarium has little motivation to provide a well-rounded education. Some bookish skittermanders experience formal tutoring and study away from the Veskarium, however, though this increased education often comes at the expense of developing their natural communication skills. A bookish skittermander’s ability score modifier is +2 Dexterity."
Unless these Skittermanders were reading paper books and had to learn to flip pages very quickly, it seems to me that the ability score adjustment should be +2 Intelligence, not +2 Dexterity.
Also, the phrase "at the expense of developing their natural communication skills" suggests there should be some kind of negative adjustment to an ability score somewhere. Any thoughts?

No, I see no reason to believe there is any error here. The attribute bonuses are smarter and less charismatic than standard for a skittermander, as described, while correctly adding up to +2 total.
There is no problem here to fix.
