This Summer, the 2015 Summer Reading Challenge will begin at libraries throughout Bristol and beyond.
The Summer Reading Challenge is a free national event, which starts at the beginning of the Summer holidays and which is held every year. It is run by The Reading Agency and aims to encourage children aged 4 – 11 to keep reading (or to be read too) throughout the Summer.
This year’s Summer Reading Challenge is extra – specially exciting with its chosen theme being Record Breakers, due to The Reading Agency teaming up with Guinness World Records to celebrate awesome achievements from all over the world.
The Summer Reading Challenge is simple. Children are encouraged to read six or more books of their choice, just as long as they are borrowed from the library, plus visit the library regularly over the Summer. There are stickers, certificates and even a medal for every child who completes the Challenge.
All you need to do is take your children to your local library and sign them up for the Challenge; all materials are absolutely free. The Summer Reading Challenge is open to all school children and is designed for all reading abilities. Schools work with local libraries and give out information to encourage children to take part, and most libraries run Summer Reading Challenge linked early years activity for pre-schoolers.
It is completely free and all children can take part. All you need to do is head to your local library during the summer holidays and enroll.
