Rutland libraries are calling for children to read six (or more) books this summer as part of Silly Squad, Summer Reading Challenge 2020.
The Summer Reading Challenge, produced by The Reading Agency and delivered by libraries, asks 4-11 year olds to borrow and read any six library books over the summer.
The theme for the 2020 Summer Reading Challenge is “Silly Squad” – a celebration of funny books, happiness and laughter, featuring bespoke artwork from award-winning children's author and illustrator, Laura Ellen Anderson.
Visit the library website for information on how to take part in the challenge.
