What is the Summer Challenge all about?
The Summer Reading Challenge takes place every year during the summer holidays and it’s for anyone who is between ages 4-11 years. You can sign up at your local library, then read at least six books of your choice to collect special stickers, and other incentives along the way – all for FREE. Here’s their website to add to the fun too! As you can watch exclusive author videos, take part in competitions and play games.
How to take part?
Sign up at your local library, you will then be given a special collector’s folder and be required to read a total of six books. You will be given two cards everytime you read two books which you will need to complete the Challenge. At the end of the challenge the kids will be awarded a medal at a prize giving ceremony.
When does it start?
The start dates depends on each library, but most would have started on July 15 until the end of the first week back at school.
We headed off to Congleton Library and here were some of the other activities that we did while getting our books. The library also had ten hidden characters which we had to locate, which made it fun.
