If you have been following our previous posts you will be aware of our Junior Bloggers project, and our aim to provide young readers with loads of inspiration for choosing their next read.
We had a fantastic response from the children in Year 5, St Peter’s Primary School, who generated loads of book reviews! So we thought that, with the summer holidays almost being upon us, we would share them with you in four instalments over the coming weeks. There are catalogue links provided for each title; why not borrow the ones you fancy and see if you agree with our Junior Bloggers’ comments?
Did you know that this year we will be running our very own summer reading challenge. Building on the success of last year’s prize draw initiative, that saw a greater number of the borough’s children to complete the challenge, we are proud to introduce:
Funimals Reading Challenge
Runs from 21st July to 9th September
Children can register in their library for free and get a collectors card. (Age limit 2-16 years)
Each time they read a book their collectors card is stamped with a date stamp and their progress is marked on their registration card.
When they have finished 6 books their registration card is marked as complete.
At the end of the holidays (9th September) all completed registration cards are put in a prize draw – drawn week beginning 11th September
Prizes : Amazon Fire Tablet
