Finely levelled for confident progression
Bug Club's match-funded readers are carefully levelled into into KS1 book bands blue, green, orange, turquoise, purple and gold.
These bands give children finer steps in reading progression and a real sense of ongoing achievement. We worked with educational consultants and banding experts Shirley Bickler and Suzanne Baker to ensure that every book is completely appropriate to the level it is pitched at, so you can be absolutely confident in your book selection for individual pupils.

Brilliantly captivating comics and graphic novels
Your children will love dipping into these fantastic books where they can explore fiction cartoon strips, non-fiction amazing facts and plenty of jokes and puzzles as well.
