Book Reader Badge

See how to complete this badge below:

  • Design a cover for your favorite book.
  • Read at least six books. Books you have read on an e-reader count too. Books read on e-book readers count too
  • Show that you know how to look after a book.
  • Make a bookmark and explain what bookmarks are for. See the video below for some ideas!

To show that your Beaver has completed the above tasks, you could send photos of them reading their chosen books, the book cover and the bookmark to your leader or to a closed FB group if your section has one.

You could also make a short video of them telling us which is their favorite book and why, explaining how to look after a book and what bookmarks are for

How To Submit Evidence To Your Leader

If your leader has Badges at Home Enabled

OSM has a new feature called badges at home! If enabled by your leader then you can have your parent log onto the OSM parent portal and submit evidence for your badge there. You can upload a document of evidence with photos, as well as attach videos you may have taken of evidence.

If your leader doesn’t have Badges at Home Enabled.

In this case, you will need to email your leader with the evidence. They should have an email address in the following format “firstname.lastname@sevenoaksscouts.org.uk”.

Hopefully they have told you this address if it is slightly different in spelling (or a shortened name). You should avoid sending any emails to a leader’s personal address because of GDPR.

You can attach evidence to the email such as a word document or a link to a google doc. Videos may be too large in size for this method so you may want to upload them elsewhere (As A Privately Hosted Video with your parent’s permission) and put a link in the email.
