My son received a good school report recently, especially with his reading. As a reward we got him to choose of his choice to buy. Naturally it is based on a computer game but he is excited about the book. To encourage this enthusiasm, he has now joined the local library and signed up for the summer reading challenge.
The summer reading challenge takes place every year during the summer holidays. It is run by the charity, The Reading Agency, and is aimed at children aged four to eleven. It is run in very nearly all libraries in the UK and it completely free.
There is a different theme every year – this year it is Mythical Maze. All you need to do is sign up your child at your local library,get them to choose and read six books. Collect stickers and other rewards along the way. For those who complete the challenge, are rewarded with a certificate of achievement. There are more fun to be had at the website; www.mythical-maze.org.uk.
Looks like we will be spending a lot of the time at the library this summer.
Until next time.
