The Summer Reading Challenge, organised by The Reading Agency charity, is aimed at children aged four to 11 and is running in all North Yorkshire libraries, including Settle.
The Summer Reading Challenge starts on Saturday, 15 July and runs until Saturday, 9 September.
This year’s theme is Animal Agents, an unlikely cast of animal detectives in hot pursuit of some unusual suspects who have been up to no good at the library! The art work for the challenge has been produced by the award-winning children’s illustrator Tony Ross.
The challenge is to read six books. Children can participate by signing up at their local library and receive a collector folder. Each time they read two books, they earn a set of scratch-and-sniff stickers to encourage them to keep reading and fill in the gaps on the folder. Other incentives include a bookmark, a fold-out game and an Animal Agents-themed wristband.
After reading six books, children receive an Animal Agents medal and a certificate. The challenge’s only rule is the books that are read must be borrowed from the library, but children can choose whatever books they like, including audiobooks.
Don’t forget to sign up – it’s free!
