Welcome to the 2020 Summer Reading Challenge!
This year’s reading challenge features the Silly Squad – a group of characters who will encourage you to read over summer.
With the help of an adult, you can sign up for free to create your own profile and avatar on the website.
When you first log in, you will be asked about books and genres you enjoy reading normally – this will help the Silly Squad to personalise the books it recommends to you.
You can also set yourself a challenge for how many books you will read over summer – be ambitious! I’ve challenged myself to 10 books.
Once your profile is set up, you can log on any time to log the books you’ve read, rate books, write reviews, take quizzes etc. Do as much or as little as you want but remember, each activity will earn you points and online prizes.
We look forward to hearing how you get on. Keep us updated on your progress!
Please note: Although public library buildings are closed, libraries will continue to deliver the Challenge through virtual services and e-lending platforms. Visit the Rochdale Libraries site here to find out how you can access eBooks, audiobooks, comics and magazines for free that you can use to complete the Challenge at home.
Jacqueline Wilson, author and supporter of the Summer Reading Challenge says:
“I feel the Summer Reading Challenge is extra important this year! How sensible to have a Silly theme. We’ve all had to deal with serious and scary issues, so it’s time for a bit of fun. There are so many comical and crazy children’s books to cheer us all up. Let’s get reading and get happy!”
