2020 Summer Reading Challenge
The Reading Agency have launched this year’s Summer Reading Challenge titled, ‘Silly Squad’. It is a celebration of funny books, happiness and laughter, featuring bespoke artwork from award-winning children's author and illustrator, Laura Ellen Anderson.
The aim is to keep children reading over the summer and support parents and carers with children already at home. This will be the only way for children to take part in the Challenge this year, due to the disruption caused by Covid-19. Because children will be taking part at a national rather than local level, they will not be sending finishers’ certificates to schools in the autumn term for presentation however, it is still a fun activity for the children to do.
