This year’s theme is Silly Squad, a team of animal friends who love to go on adventures and get stuck in to all different kinds of funny books. For 2020 it’s all about funny books, happiness and having a laugh!
The Summer Reading Challenge combines FREE access to books with fun creative online activities; This year it has been extended launched on Friday 5th June and will run until mid-September.
How the Challenge works
- Children sign up online to the Digital Summer Reading Challenge https://summerreadingchallenge.org.uk/.
- The website will be free to access, featuring games, quizzes, digital and downloadable activities to incentivise and encourage children and their families to take part in the Challenge at home. Although library buildings are closed, libraries will also continue to deliver the Challenge through virtual services and e-lending platforms i.e. Borrowbox, Facebook and Twitter.
- Children taking part this year will be asked to set their own reading goal and we are keen to see if this encourages take up and completion. However, we will still be suggesting six books as the best goal to try for. Children who complete their Summer Reading Challenge will be able to download a certificate.
