Summer Reading Challenge 2021

We love to support the Summer Reading Challenge as it aims to keep kids reading throughout the summer holidays. Join the Summer Reading Challenge 2021!  

What is the Summer Reading Challenge?

The Challenge encourages children aged 4 to 11 to enjoy the benefits of reading for pleasure over the summer holidays, providing lots of fun and enjoyment as well as helping to prevent the summer reading ‘dip’.  This year the  theme is 'The Silly Squad ' who are a team of animal friends who love to go on adventures. The challenge runs from early June mid-September  during the school summer holidays.

The Summer Reading Challenge, presented by The Reading Agency, is delivered in partnership with public libraries and funded by Arts Council England.

This year they have teamed up with WWF for a very special nature-themed Challenge that will inspire you to stand up for the planet!

Wild World Heroes will feature amazing books, awesome rewards, and plenty of ideas for taking care of our environment.  Get excited to join the #WildWorldHeroes this summer?
