Reading: Free Resources to support Reading for Pleasure

Go wild for reading with the Summer Reading Challenge!

 Visit your local library this summer to take part in the Wild World Heroes Summer Reading Challenge. This year The Reading Agency has partnered with WWF to create an exciting challenge that will inspire children to take action for nature and the environment. Join the Wild World Heroes for an exciting adventure in the fictional town of ‘Wilderville’. Through reading books, collecting rewards and learning all about our planet, Challenge participants will help the Heroes make Wilderville a greener place to live. With stickers to collect and plenty of brilliant books to enjoy, the Challenge is the perfect summer activity to build young readers’ skills and confidence during the long break from school. Children who manage to read 6 or more books will earn a special medal and certificate. Wild World Heroes launches on Saturday 10th July and runs until Friday 10th September 2021.
