Reading Schemes

Book bands are a great way to identify the right readers for children. All of our series benefits from different book sizes, wonderful illustrations, a variety of characters and lots of genres. All our reading schemes match the different tastes in your classroom and engage all your readers. You can now order your reading schemes by the Scheme, by the appropriate Class level and also individually by title in most schemes which is an ideal way to replace or replenish lost readers or to get a feel for a scheme without having to invest heavily.
