Wild World Heroes Summer Reading Challenge 2021

The Reading Agency have teamed up with WWF for a nature themed Summer Reading Challenge and will encourage children to discover how they can make a difference to the environment. The Challenge will begin on Saturday 17 July and end on Saturday 11 September in all East Sussex Libraries.

Children need a library card and PIN to take part. If they don't already have one they can join the library online (card will be posted to home address) or in any branch. They then need to sign up to the Challenge at www.eastsussex.gov.uk/src

What does the Challenge involve?

  • Children sign up to Wild World Heroes, then visit their local library to collect a Reader Record and sticker as a reward for taking part.

  • Choose 6 library books to read. They can be any type: fiction / non-fiction, e-books, e-audio books, Bag Books for children with special educational needs, books on CD - it's up to them. Children do not need to be independent readers to take part. They can share their books with friends and family. They do not need to borrow all their books at once. After they have read each book they can come back to the library, tell us their doing the Challenge and collect the appropriate prize. 

  • When they have read and told us about 6 books they will receive a Wild World Heroes pencil, medal and certificate for completing the Summer Reading Challenge. As usual we will give them the option of having their certificates presented in school assembly. Certificates will be sent to  schools at the beginning of October.
