Book Bands for the Phonics Readers series

12th January 2015

We are very excited to announce the new and revised book bands for the Phonics Readers series.

Many schools band books by colour to help children choose the right books for their reading ability. For example, the simplest books are Band 1, which is pink, and the top level is Band 11, which is lime. A selection of Usborne titles have been assessed for banding, and the phonics series sits within bands 5 (green), 6 (orange) and 7 (turquoise).

So whichever title you choose, you can see the book band and equivalent National Curriculum Level with this updated full list of titles.
