South Gloucestershire Council Libraries are inviting local children, aged between 4 and 11 to head to their library this summer to join the ‘Wild World Heroes’, Summer Reading Challenge 2021.
Our local Libraries and The Reading Agency have partnered with World Wildlife Foundation (WWF) for this year’s Challenge, which is a celebration of nature and positive action to support the environment. It is free to take part and runs until 11 September in libraries across South Gloucestershire.
The Challenge supports children to become more independent readers and improves their confidence in reading over the summer break. It also supports positive mental wellbeing, boosting children’s confidence and self-esteem.
To get involved, children sign-up at their local library, read six books over the summer holiday and receive stickers to complete a ‘Wild World Heroes’ collector’s poster. A medal and certificate are presented to those who complete it and as the Challenge progresses, children discover how they can make a positive difference to the environment.
The Challenge is open to all primary school aged children, but this year there is also the Mini Challenge which is specially designed for pre-school children, so little ones can get involved too.Leave a comment
