Reading Champion Leaflet

In April 2017, Hachette Children's and Franklin Watts launched their own reading programme for children aged 4-11. The programme follows the same format as most reading schemes with a range of titles specially designed and written for each of the book bands (which are divided into reading age groups) with each band having its own colour representing it. The first 6 bands were published in 2017 and by the end of 2018 bands 7-14 will be published. The programme will then continue expanding until 2020. You can buy various Reading Champion books on our website and find all the information you want to know about the scheme in the sheets below. If you right click and save the images, you can print your own copy of this handy leaflet to refer to whenever you need it.
