Summer Reading Challenge

Summer Reading Challenge Mischief Makers

Mischief Makers, The Summer Reading Challenge 2018 is inspired by the much-loved children's comic 'Beano' which is celebrating its 80th Anniversary.

Children taking part in the challenge this year will follow clues to explore their colourful collector's map of Beanotown; meeting Dennis, Gnasher and friends along the way.

As children read library books, they will collect special stickers to help them find the mysterious buried treasure!

Mischief Makers: the Summer Reading Challenge starts in your local library on Saturday 14 July and will run until Saturday 15 September. It's FREE for all children aged 4–11 to take part and you can collect fun rewards as you read books through the holidays.

General information about the Summer Reading Challenge

The Summer Reading Challenge is aimed at children aged 4–11 years and is for everyone regardless of their reading ability. Taking part is easy and free. Just visit a library to sign up. Borrow books through the summer and earn stickers and other free rewards along the way. You'll get a certificate after you've read six books.

You can read whatever you like, fact, fiction, joke books or poetry, from our excellent range. You can even borrow audio books and listen if you prefer.

Taking part in the Summer Reading Challenge helps children to become more fluent, confident and happy readers.

The Summer Reading Challenge is produced by The Reading Agency and delivered by libraries.
