Book Band Collections

Badger Learning’s philosophy for the last 25 years has always been to cherry pick exemplary books for schools and every age and stage within.

The Badger Banded Reading Boxes contain ‘real’ books which have been levelled against the widely-used colour banding levels in a ‘best-fit’ way. These collections will help teachers to easily discover books that meet the needs of individual pupils whilst bringing variety and breadth to children’s reading diets and helping children to get the most out of reading for pleasure.

For schools looking to refresh or invigorate their reading scheme book stocks, we offer a quick and easy collection of mixed scheme books in every colour in the Book Band reading programme. Our mixed scheme boxes feature books from schemes such as: Oxford’s wide range of series including Traditional Tales, Story Sparks, All Stars and inFact; Big Cat; Engage Literacy; Ransom Reading Stars; Reading Planet and more.

With over 90 book banded collections ranging from single colour book band boxes to library collections featuring multiple bands. Below indicates the expected book band level for each year group except where stated.
