Reading Champion

Reading Champion is an independent reading series with a fresh, modern approach, featuring diverse characters, vibrant artwork and contemporary topics. Developed in consultation with UCL Institute of Education (IOE), the books are carefully linked to book bands to offer the right level of challenge and encourage reading for pleasure.

Reading Champion works alongside any guided reading scheme used in the classroom and guidance notes in each book help parents and carers support independent reading at home. This makes  Reading Champion ideal for home or school.
