Summer Reading Challenge 2021
Are you ready to be a Wild World Hero?
Pack your bags, as from July 10th, you can join the Wild World Heroes for the Summer Reading Challenge and discover how you can make a difference to the environment too. This year is in association with WWF for a very special nature-themed challenge that will inspire you to stand up for the planet!
Children are invited to read six books of their choice over the summer. Each book read helps them explore Wilderville and help the Wild World Heroes solve the environmental problems they spot along the way. There are stickers (including some very smelly ones!) and other rewards to collect.
All children who complete the challenge will get a medal and certificate. To discover more, visit The Reading Agency website
It’s all FREE and for children of all ages.
How to take part
This year children can take part either online or by joining at their local library from 10th July.
To join the challenge online, visit The Reading Agency website. Click on the ‘join’ button on the right hand side and follow the instructions. You will need a parent or carer to help you create an account if you don’t already have one.
Once you have set up your account, bring confirmation to your local library to receive your joining prize. When you have finished the challenge come back to the library to collect your medal and certificate.
We have chosen a different animal theme and book for each week of the summer holidays. You can listen every Friday from 23rd July as Stacey reads a story on our Facebook page. During the following week you will be able to head to your local library to pick up a craft pack based on the story.
Spark Arts theatre coming soon!
The amazing Spark Arts will also be back in libraries and parks this summer with their brand new performance called ‘Seasons.’ This interactive and socially distanced show takes place at Southglade Park, Vernon Park, Meadows, Bilborough and Strelley Libraries. Find out more on our Seasons webpage. Tickets available here.
