Do you know a primary school-aged child who loves to read?

The Summer Reading Challenge 2020 will launch on Friday 5 June and you can join the Silly Squad on a new adventure by setting your own personal reading challenge to complete this summer. Create a free profile to keep track of your books, reviews, and all of the special rewards you unlock along the way. You’ll also find heaps of super silly activities, quizzes, videos, games and more to keep you entertained at home. This year’s Challenge runs from June to September, so there is plenty of time to take part and get silly this summer.

For parents:

Children taking part in the Challenge will join the Silly Squad, an adventurous team of animals who love to have a laugh and get stuck in to all different kinds of funny books. The digital Challenge is free to access, featuring games, quizzes and digital and downloadable activities to incentivise and encourage children and their families to take part in treading related activities at home.

Head to www.sillysquad.org.uk to sign up to the Challenge!- and keep an eye on the Summer Reading Challenge Facebook page throughout the summer to catch even more fantastic videos from our wonderful ambassadors and book collection authors!
