SUMMER READING CHALLENGE: CREEPY HOUSE
STARTS 13TH JULY
Children’s reading can ‘dip’ during the long summer holidays. The annual Summer Reading Challenge helps gets three quarters of a million children into libraries to keep up their reading skills and confidence.
The Summer Reading Challenge, which is completely free, starts on Saturday 13th July and finishes on Saturday 7th September, and aims to encourage children aged 4 to 11 to read six books during the long summer holiday.
There is a different theme each year. Children can read whatever they like – fact books, joke books, picture books, audio books – just as long as they are borrowed from the library.
Every time your child finishes a book they get stickers and rewards and there’s a certificate & medal for everyone that that complete all six books.
The theme for the 2013 Summer Reading Challenge is Creepy House. Log onto the Creepy House Web Site and join all the other children in the country that are taking part in the challenge: http://summerreadingchallenge.org.uk
The Summer Reading Challenge is open to all children and is designed for all reading abilities. You must be a library member to take part. It is easy to join and free. Ask at your local library.
