The annual Merton Summer Reading Challenge, (organised by The Reading Agency and the public library network), is taking place once again.
This year the theme is: Space Chase, an out-of-this-world adventure inspired by the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing!
Children aged 4-11 are encouraged to read six or more library books of their choice during the summer holidays with collectable incentives and rewards. Those who finish the challenge will get a medal and a certificate along with the chance of winning one of many prizes. Younger siblings aged 2-3 years can join the fun with a mini Space Chase Challenge, to receive stickers and a certificate.
You can sign up at your local library and it’s absolutely free.
