The Summer Reading Challenge
The Summer Reading Challenge takes place during the school holidays every summer at a library near you.
The challenge, aimed at 4-11 year olds, is to read six or more books over the summer.
Created and coordinated by the Reading Agency, the Summer Reading Challenge focuses on reading for pleasure for children across the UK. Research has shown that children who take part go back to school with improved reading skills and a boost to their confidence.
Summer Reading Challenge 2013
This year, the challenge runs, in all Nottinghamshire Libraries, from Saturday 13 July – Sunday 8 September and the theme is “Creepy House”.
There’s a spine-tingling adventure waiting for children when they take part in the 2013 Summer Reading Challenge. They can join our adventurers as they explore the Creepy House, simply by reading six books from the library. They can discover the secrets of the Creepy House and meet some of the hair-raising residents, including Twilight Tim, Headless Harry, Scarecrow Sid and a rather unusual cat.
Are Nottinghamshire’s children brave enough to explore The Awful Upstairs, The Gruesome Ground Floor and The Spine-tingling Cellar? If so, they can join in the challenge and collect stickers, Mystery Mungler Trumps Cards, bookmarks and a glow in the dark wrist band.
