These badges which promote reading were available to collect in my childhood. I still had a few in my collection but topped them up with extras bought from ebay. The children love looking at them and choosing which ones they like the best. I have also begun rewarding readers with badges but couldn’t find a huge variety. The bronze, silver and gold bookworm badge pins are extremely popular with many children aspiring to own one of these. Luckily for the new academic year I have sourced some new button badges similar to my originals so the children will have something new to strive for.
