Reading Champion Key Stage 1 books feature 10 book bands. Key Stage 2 books are indicated by the black logo and progress from level 11 (7 year olds or those in Year 3) to level 18 (11 year olds or those in Year 6).

Word count and vocabulary develops through the bands, from the same text on every page at Pink 1A to increasingly more complex sentences.
