Summer Reading Challenge 2017: Animal Agents!

Thursday, 29th June 2017

 

 

Join the UK's biggest reading event for children in libraries!

22nd July – 2nd September 2017

Animal Agents is the Summer Reading Challenge 2017 (with illustrations by Tony Ross).

Taking part is easy and it's totally FREE.  Children aged 4+ years can join any time during the holidays - just read 6 or more books from the library.  It's great fun and children return to school after summer break as more fluent, confident and happy readers.

 

How it works:

  • Choose your books from any part of the Children's Library

  • On your next visit talk to us about one of the books you have read

  • If you like, write a review of one other book or draw a picture

  • Collect limited edition collectors cards - watch out, some of them are smelly!

  • Look online for recommended books to read, competitions and games - www.summerreadingchallenge.org.uk

  • Most importantly, have fun and enjoy your holiday reading!

 

Awards for reading:

  • On joining: Joiner Sticker

  • 1st book: Animal Agents Read Fold Out Wallet & Collectors Card

  • 2nd book: Collectors Card

  • 3rd book: Collectors Card

  • 4th book: Collectors Card & Door Hanger

  • 5th book: Collectors Card

  • 6th book: Collectors Card, certificate, gold medal & swimming voucher
