Silly Squad, Summer Reading Challenge 2020
Published: 30 June 2020
Join the Silly Squad
Not sure how to keep the children entertained during the long summer months? This year's Summer Reading Challenge has begun and the theme this year is Silly Squad. Produced by The Reading Agency and delivered by libraries, it is a celebration of happiness and laughter to lift spirits and help children to keep reading while not at school.
This year the Challenge will be online and runs from June until September. Children can sign up now and create their own profile on the Summer Reading Challenge website.
They set their own challenge to read as many books as they want to, anything that makes them happy – whether its comics, joke books, poetry, fiction or non-fiction. Along the way they'll receive rewards, play games and earn badges as they discover fun books to read and listen to over the summer.
Books can be e-books, audio books or they can read them in print format. They can choose from books they already have at home or from Surrey Libraries' e-lending platforms. Parents can also join the Summer Reading Challenge's Facebook page where a virtual Let's Get Silly programme is available.
Surrey libraries is still planning to run the Summer Reading Challenge in libraries once they open, using their book stock this summer.
