This year’s Summer Reading Challenge is Mischief Makers; celebrating the 80th anniversary of the much-loved comic, Beano.
Your child can help Dennis, Gnasher and friends explore Beanotown to find the mysterious buried treasure – with tons of fun along the way! Aimed at children aged 4-11 years (although this is flexible), they can join this year’s Summer Reading Challenge at their local library from Saturday 14th July 2018.
It’s totally FREE and to get started all your child has to do is sign up at their local library where they will be given a collector poster to keep a record of their Summer Reading Challenge journey.
As they read their books, each child will receive special stickers to complete their poster. Once they have collected all the stickers they will be able to find the buried treasure and become top mischief maker
Children are encouraged to read at least six library books. They can be any books they like – novels, fact books, joke books, e-books or audio books, they all count – and your library will have staff and volunteers on hand to help children choose books they will really enjoy.
The Challenge is a great time to share and talk about books as a family. Sitting down with a book, newspaper or magazine sets a good example to kids – they will copy you.
You can use the Summer Reading Challenge website to keep track of the books you read and write book reviews, enter competitions and much more!
