Last year I picked up the new Making Music Matter books to look at for beginning band with the plan I would read through it and try it with our NV JH Band that year. A day in I decided there was no way in heck it was a beginning band book! But, over that semester I worked through it with that NV band and developed some great readers through it! I firmly believe it's one of the best books for a second band that I've seen! It reminds notes and such, but splits into harmony right away and has some great exercises that seem to help with sight-reading. It would be worth giving it a look for what you want!
(Just NOT for beginning band...)
