Summer Reading Challenge still on this year!
Join the Silly Squad, an adventurous team of animals and celebrate books that make us happy and laugh, featuring bespoke artwork from award-winning children’s author and illustrator Laura Ellen Anderson.
Due to the Coronavirus, The Reading Agency has redesigned this year’s Summer Reading Challenge into a virtual one. As libraries are closed children can read books they have at home or borrow e-books and e-audiobooks from the library on BorrowBox
To help keep children reading over the summer and to support parents and carers with children already at home, the challenge started earlier this year, on Friday 5 June. The digital challenge platform is free for children and their families to join and use, providing a safe and secure sign-up process. Children can set up their own personal reading goals and keep track of their progress, unlocking virtual rewards as they work through their challenge. As well as finding book suggestions from the Book Sorter, the Silly Squad website will include games, quizzes and downloadable activities. So head over to the website and join in the fun at www.sillysquad.org.uk
