The Summer Reading Challenge will take place during the summer holidays, starting on Saturday 16th July and finishing on Saturday 10th September. Every child who joins the ‘Big Friendly Read’ at any local library (including Wrose Library) will receive a fold-up wallet with six limited edition Quentin Blake collector cards when they sign up. The children then receive bookmarks, fortune tellers, door hangers, Rainbow Glasses and wristbands as they read books of their choice. Every child who reads 6 books during the holidays will receive a certificate and medal to celebrate their achievement. This gives the children the chance to enjoy books throughout the summer holidays whilst being rewarded for their efforts – and it obviously keeps them reading ready to start back in September!
