The Wild World Heroes are coming to a library near you this summer. Let’s meet them!
The Summer Reading Challenge runs from Saturday 10 July to Tuesday 31 August in all Essex libraries and mobile libraries.
Children need to read six books to help the Wilderville children make a difference to the environment. To take part they will need their own library card, so if anyone in your family is not a library member pop down to your local library to join or join online now.
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. The under threes are not forgotten - there's a special version of Wild World Heroes just for them.
The Summer Reading Challenge is delivered by libraries and produced by The Reading Agency. It's 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.
