The Winter Mini Reading Challenge

The Wild World Heroes gang are back. This time, the characters will be going on an Arctic adventure to explore and celebrate our natural world. Following the COP26 climate talks in Glasgow, the theme will inspire children to explore ways of helping to save the planet. With ideas from WWF-UK, the Challenge focuses on acting for nature and tackling environmental issues.

The Reading Agency is once again teaming up with WWF-UK to continue the Wild World Heroes’ theme for the Winter Mini Challenge.

How can children take part in the Winter Mini Challenge?

To take part, children simply read three books or more – these can be any books of their choice.

Every time they finish a book, they add it to their Challenge website profile and leave a short book review.

Reaching their online reading goal will unlock a special virtual badge and a new Wild World Hero certificate to print off and keep.

They can also find fun activities, videos, and reading recommendations.



Bookstart is a national charity giving free books to Under 5s.
