Maverick Early Readers are written by a team of talented authors to a unique set of guidelines tailored for Maverick’s reading scheme. All colour bands are checked by the Institute of Education before publication. To encourage those still new to reading, the earlier bands are written using the phonemes and graphemes covered in the relevant ‘Letters and Sounds’ phases. The vocabulary used in the books is natural English, focusing on enjoyable stories to inspire the next generation of readers. More information on the structure of each band can be found on each of their individual pages.
