Shropshire Libraries are inviting children across the county to sign-up for a seriously silly summer with this year’s Summer Reading Challenge.
The Summer Reading Challenge is aimed at primary school aged children and encourages them to keep reading over the summer holidays.
This year the theme is Silly Squad and is all about funny books, happiness and having a laugh with characters created by award-winning children’s author and illustrator, Laura Ellen Anderson.
The Challenge this year has moved online and, as always, it is free to sign up.
Participants will need the email address and permission of a parent or carer to register and set up their reading profile. Once they have done this, it’s time to get reading!
Children can set their own reading goal, rate and review their books and unlock activities and rewards as they progress. When their reading goal is reached they can download and print a certificate.
The website also features video content, games, quizzes, digital and downloadable activities to get children excited about taking part in the Challenge at home.
The Silly Squad Summer Reading Challenge runs until 12 September 2020 and was created by the Reading Agency.
Shropshire Libraries are running a limited service from their buildings but there are lots of services you can access from home. To find silly books or magazines to read take a look at their e-library. You can also order and collect up to 10 books per person from your library through their free Ready Reads Collect service.
Any questions? Contact at email@example.com or visit the Shropshire Libraries website https://shropshire.gov.uk/libraries/
Parents and Carers can also rise to the challenge by joining Shropshire Summer Reads. Registering for the challenge is easy – just visit Shropshire Libraries’ website to find a simple joining form. Completed entries will be entered in a prize draw for book vouchers, kindly funded by library Friends groups and redeemable at independent book shops across Shropshire.
