Summer Reading Challenge

Saturday 10 July – Tuesday 31 August 2021

The Summer Reading Challenge - Wild World Heroes - runs from Saturday 10 July to Tuesday 31 August in all Essex libraries and mobile libraries.

Children are asked to read six books to help the Wilderville children make a difference to the environment. As they read library books, they will collect stickers for their folder. After reading six books they earn their certificate and medal.

Children can read any library book of their choice; fiction, non-fiction, picture books or books they share with parents and carers – they all count.  There is a special version of Wild World Heroes for children under three.

The Summer Reading Challenge is delivered by libraries and produced by The Reading Agency. It is open to all children, free of charge.

Children can take part in the online Summer Reading Challenge on the Wild World Heroes website to earn digital rewards.
