The book collection for this year’s Summer Reading Challenge has been announced, and we’re absolutely thrilled to see that six Nosy Crow titles are on the list!
The Summer Reading Challenge encourages children aged 4 to 11 to read six books during the long summer holiday, to keep up their reading skills and confidence.
Children receive special rewards each time they finish a book and there’s a certificate for everyone who completes the Challenge. The Summer Reading Challenge is open to all primary school aged children and is designed for all reading abilities. Schools work with local libraries and give out information to encourage children to take part, and most libraries run Summer Reading Challenge linked early years activity for pre-schoolers.
There’s a different theme each year – this year’s theme is Mischief Makers.
