The Wild World Heroes Summer Reading Challenge is coming to a library near you this summer!
Wirral Libraries have teamed up with the Reading Agency, and the World Wildlife Fund for a very special nature-themed challenge that will inspire you to stand up for the planet!
Our Wild World Heroes live in Wilderville, a pretty cool place, but there are lots of things that the Wild World Heroes can do to make their town even better for the people and animals that live there.
When does it start?
The challenge runs from Saturday 10 July to Saturday 4 September 2021 and is aimed at children from 4 to 11 years old. There is also a mini-challenge for pre-school children.
How does the Reading Challenge work?
Children are being asked to read 6 books to help the Wilderville children make a difference to the environment. As they read library books, they will collect stickers to help complete their Wild World Heroes poster. All children taking part will receive a certificate, and, if they complete the challenge by reading 6 or more books, they will receive a Wild World Heroes medal.
Children can read any library book of their choice; fiction, non-fiction, picture books or books they share with parents and carers, or even download ebooks or eaudio books from Wirral’s Borrowbox and Libby titles – they all count.
The Summer Reading Challenge is delivered by libraries and produced by The Reading Agency. It is open to all children, free of charge. The Reading Agency is the leading national charity inspiring people of all ages and backgrounds to read for pleasure and wellbeing. Working with partners such as the public library service, their aim is to make reading accessible to everyone. The Reading Agency is funded by the Arts Council.
