Get Ready to get Silly!
The Summer Reading Challenge, presented by the Reading Agency in partnership with Havering Libraries, is an annual event aimed at 4 – 11 year olds. Children are encouraged to read books of their choice during the summer holidays with collectable incentives and rewards, plus a certificate for every child who completes the Challenge.
This year, with the disruption caused by Covid-19 there will be an all-new digital Summer Reading Challenge to keep children reading over the summer. It launches this Friday 5th June and will run through to September. Due to the unusual circumstances there will not be a challenge aimed at preschool children this year.
The theme for the Challenge this year is “Silly Squad” – a celebration of funny books, happiness and laughter.
So from Friday 5th June children can sign up to complete the Silly Squad challenge on the website www.sillysquad.co.uk (live from Friday 5th June).
