laughSummer Reading Challenge yes

The Summer Reading Challenge, presented by The Reading Agency, is delivered in partnership with public libraries and funded by Arts Council England. The Challenge encourages children aged 4 to 11 to enjoy the benefits of reading for pleasure over the summer holidays, providing lots of fun as well as preventing the summer reading ‘dip’. Click on the link to find out more information and to sign up to the challenge: 



Visit your local library website to find out how you can access eBooks, audiobooks, comics and magazines for free that you can use to complete the Challenge at home.


The challenge is FREE to join and you will also have access to games, quizzes and downloadable activities that incentivise and encourage children to take part in reading related activities!
