Summer Reading Challenge
The Summer Reading Challenge encourages children to use their local library and maintain their reading habit through the summer and aims to mitigate the dip in performance associated with a long break from reading, that many children experience in the new school year.
From 1 July until the 17 September, children 0-15 years can sign up to take part and complete the six-book challenge. Our offer is enhanced with a range of free activities for the whole family, all designed to promote reading for pleasure and the joy of sharing books and stories.
A Ready, Set Read! invitation bookmark has been sent for every child in primary school and, as an additional incentive, will offer a £100 book prize to the school from which the highest percentage of pupils complete the challenge.
For further information about our full programme of activities please visit leicester.gov.uk/summerreadingchallenge.
We hope you will join us in encouraging your children to keep reading this summer.
