Winter Mini Reading Challenge
Now the nights are drawing in, the Reading Agency’s winter mini reading challenge is here and to help keep children reading over the winter holidays, we’d like to share the details with you.
The Reading Agency have teamed up with award-winning inclusive publisher Knights Of to run an
Everyone Is A Hero themed Mini Challenge to celebrate heroes in all their forms and keep children
reading this winter. It features characters from Knights and Bikes, High Rise Mystery and the Run
There is a free-to-access website featuring rewards and incentives for reading and reviewing books.
It will all be run online (there are no packs) and will follow a similar format to the Summer Reading
Challenge. There is a downloadable certificate at the end.
How can children take part in the Winter Mini Challenge?
The Winter Mini Challenge is run through The Reading Agency’s year-round children's website.
To take part, children simply read three or more books - these can be any books of their choice.
Every time they finish a book, they add it to their Challenge website profile and leave a short book
Reaching their online reading goal will unlock a virtual badge and a special Everyone Is a Hero
certificate to print off and keep!
Here is a suggested reading list.
This list is full of heroes that inspire, challenge and push the definition of what it means to be a hero.
These and many more heroic titles can be reserved and collected from Hertfordshire Libraries even
whilst libraries are not open for browsing. And we have our BorrowBox e-library too.
The mini challenge website will also feature a whole host of fun activities, videos and reading
recommendations, plus an exciting competition.
