Cambridge Reading Adventures

Learners can explore space, sail with pirate queens and travel back to the Ice Age with Cambridge Reading Adventure's diverse range of fiction and non-fiction. Developed with experts at the UCL Institute of Education's International Literacy Centre it provides structured progression through book bands, helping learners become confident, independent readers.

Cambridge Reading Adventures takes children from being a wholly new reader in the Pink Band to being fluent, independent readers at the Voyagers Strand. Teacher’s notes are provided inside every book with full guidance to get the most out of every reading session.
