Saturday 10 July – Tuesday 31 August 2021

The Wild World Heroes are coming to a library near you this summer!

We’re teaming up with 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.

The challenge runs from Saturday 10 July to Tuesday 31 August in all Essex libraries and mobile libraries.

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 for their folder. After reading 6 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 with 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 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.
