Summer Reading Challenge

Winter Reading Mini-Challenge for Children.

Summer Reading Challenge

The Summer Reading Challenge from the Reading Agency takes place every year during the summer holidays, from Saturday 10 July to Saturday 29 August 2021.

This year the Summer Reading Challenge is back and online with the Wild World Heroes.

We are inviting young people to explore Wilderville, an exciting town which is suffering some serious environmental problems.   But with the help of the Wild World Heroes, there’s plenty of ways to make the town better for the people and animals that live there. 

Wild World Heroes will feature amazing books, awesome rewards, and plenty of ideas for taking care of our environment.
