A primary reading series developed with UCL Institute of Education to help children become confident, independent readers.

Reading Champion is an independent reading series with a fresh, modern approach. Developed in consultation with UCL Institute of Education (IOE), the books have been specifically written for independent reading and are designed to help children practise and embed their developing reading skills.

Carefully linked to book bands to offer the right level of challenge

Each book has been carefully graded by literacy experts so that it can be matched to a child’s reading ability, encouraging reading for pleasure.

Exciting stories and vibrant artwork

Reading Champion books are designed to appeal to every child, and feature diverse characters, vibrant artwork and contemporary topics. There’s lots of choice too, with over 150 books available for Reception, Key Stage 1 (ages 4-7) and Key Stage 2 (ages 7-11).

Ideal for home or school

Reading Champion works alongside any guided reading scheme used in the classroom and guidance notes at the back of each book help parents and carers support independent reading at home, making this series a great choice for boosting your classroom’s reading material or developing reading skills at home.

Reading Champion is published by Franklin Watts, an imprint of Hachette Children’s Group.
