The Summer Reading Challenge takes place every year as children break up from school for the summer holidays, and it’s a great way to get children reading a variety of different books throughout the long break.
This year’s theme is Animal Agents, and children will have the chance to not only broaden their reading horizons, but to take part in fun quizzes and competitions too. Your child can register at your local library, where they’ll be given a Summer Reading Challenge Folder and sticker sheet. You can also sign up online to record your child’s progress.
The Animal Agents love solving mysteries and they need YOU to help them crack their biggest case yet. Who has painted graffiti on the library wall? Why are things suddenly going missing?
Join the Animal Agents for the Summer Reading Challenge 2017 and help them uncover the truth!
Taking part is simple – when the summer holidays start, your child can sign up at your local library. Read six library books (or more!) over the holidays to collect special stickers and complete the Challenge. Each time you visit the library, you’ll discover new clues and evidence that will help you solve this cryptic case.
Each time your child reads a book, they can add it to their online profile, give it a rating out of 5 and they’ll also have the chance to write a review about it for others to read and see if they fancy reading that particular book too.
There are plenty of books to choose from at the library, if your child is unsure about which books to read, then once they’ve signed up for the challenge and also registered online, they can make full use of the ‘book sorter’. This recommends books that have been read by other children, based on the type of books your child loves to read.
The website is also full of great quizzes and competitions. These not only provide the perfect chance to improve or brush up on reading and writing skills, they also allow children to get creative and maybe even win prizes from their favourite authors – how fantastic is that?
