‘Very appealing and we have no hesitation in recommending’ Topmarks gives top marks to Maverick Early Readers!

Education resource site Topmarks has just posted a fantastic review for our Early Readers scheme which reaches 100 titles in May:

There is a fantastic range of titles available, all with really charming illustrations and stories that will appeal to both boys and girls. Each book is well made, with sturdy paperback covers and printed on high-quality paper. We are impressed that the books are colour-coded with the book banding scheme, as developed by the UCL (University College London) Institute of Education, that is widely used in UK schools and libraries. The colours are indicated on the spine, front and back cover of each book, simplifying organisation and reading level identification.

Maverick Publishing have certainly put a lot of thought into planning their Early Readers scheme.

We found the Early Readers guided reading scheme very appealing and we have no hesitation in recommending it.’
