This year’s Summer Reading Challenge is Mischief Makers; celebrating the 80th anniversary of the much-loved comic, Beano.
Your child can help Dennis, Gnasher and friends explore Beanotown to find the mysterious buried treasure – with tons of fun along the way!
Children aged 4-11 years (or above and below) can join this year’s Summer Reading Challenge at Libraries across York NOW!
It’s totally FREE and to get started all your child has to do is sign up at their local library where they will be given a collector poster to keep a record of their Summer Reading Challenge journey.
As they read their books, each child will receive special stickers to complete their poster. Once they have collected all the stickers they will be able to find the buried treasure and become top mischief maker
Children are encouraged to read at least six library books. They can be any books they like – novels, fact books, joke books, e-books or audio books, they all count – and your library will have staff and volunteers on hand to help children choose books they will really enjoy.
The Challenge is a great time to share and talk about books as a family. Sitting down with a book, newspaper or magazine sets a good example to kids – they will copy you.
