Use the book band that your child is reading at school to help them choose a book that is at the right level for their ability. You should decide together whether your child will read the story independently or read it aloud to you. If reading aloud then you should support your child if they hesitate or ask for help. If reading to themselves, remind your child that they can come and ask for help if they get stuck.

Each book contains guidance notes for parents and carers using the books at home. These notes include questions to ask before they start reading, such as “Why did you choose this book? Why do you think you will enjoy it?”, as well as suggested questions and a fun comprehension activity for after they have read the book. These questions aim to help children learn to make good choices when choosing independent reading books, and support their comprehension of the story.

What are book bands?

Books used for guided reading at school are usually assigned a coloured and/or numbered book band to indicate the level of challenge of the book, this helps to track a child’s reading progress.

Reading Champion is linked to book bands to help children select the right level books for independent reading. Key Stage 1 (4-7 year olds or Reception to Year 2) books are indicated by a coloured and numbered band (e.g. Yellow 3). 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). If your child is reading book band Turquoise 7 at school, then Reading Champion Turquoise 7 books should offer the right level of challenge for independent reading at home.
