The Summer Reading Challenge is back
The Summer Reading Challenge 2020 started earlier than usual on 5 June & runs through the summer, finishing on 30 Sept. Free & lots of fun for children! With COVID-19 disruptions meaning that library buildings are currently closed and many children still being home schooled, for the first time in Kent the Summer Reading Challenge is going to be a digital only activity, aimed at keeping children reading as well as supporting parents / carers with children already at home. It’s aimed at children aged 4 – 11 and is completely free!
This year’s title is “Silly Squad”, focussing on funny books, happiness & things that make us laugh. Children taking part in the challenge will join the Silly Squad, an adventurous team of animals who love to have a laugh and get stuck into many different kinds of funny books. It features bespoke artwork from award-winning children’s author and illustrator Laura Ellen Anderson (Amelia Fang; Evil Emperor Penguin).
There is a special Schools Pack, full of ideas on how your school can get involved – free to download from the resource bank on The Reading Agency’s website https://readingagency.org.uk/resources/4427/
