Reading is the most important skill we are ever taught. When we are very young we learn to read , but as we continue, we read to learn. This year the National Reading Challenge is called the Silly Squad and was officially launched on Friday 5th June. Our challenge to you is to join it by going to www.sillysquad.org.uk using the link below and registering.
You are able to set your own personal reading challenge and the online platform will help to keep track of your books, reviews and the rewards you unlock along the way.
There are lots of brilliant book suggestions and tips on how you can keep reading even while libraries are closed.
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!"
