Story Lab - the Summer Reading Challenge 2012
Update – There’s still three weeks to go for the Summer Reading Challenge, have a look at Trish Rushen’s post in the forum for details.
This summer, 780,000 children will join Story Lab at their local library.
Every year, thousands of families all over the country are involved in the UK’s biggest reading event for children in libraries, the Summer Reading Challenge, coordinated by The Reading Agency. In 2012, the Challenge is called Story Lab.
The aim of the challenge is to get children to read six books from their library during the summer holidays. Everyone who signs up for the Summer Reading Challenge can keep track of the books they read and receive encouragement to keep reading all summer long. It’s great fun for kids and what’s more, it doesn’t cost a penny to join.
The Summer Reading Challenge is designed for children of all ages and reading abilities. They can read any books they like – fact books, stories, joke books, picture books – it’s up to them. Audio books count too! As long as you’re borrowing them from the library, they all count.
Story Lab starts at Aldbourne Library on Monday 16th July.
