Summer Reading Challenge 2021

The Summer Reading Challenge takes place over the summer holidays throughout the UK.

Run by national charity The Reading Agency, and delivered with the support of the UK public library network, it is the UK’s biggest free reading promotion for primary aged children.

The Challenge reaches over 700,000 families each year, motivates children to keep reading during the summer holidays, and helps them to maintain their reading skills and confidence.

Available online and through public libraries, the Challenge provides fun reading for pleasure activities for all abilities and helps to prevent the summer reading ‘dip’ during the long break from school.

The Summer Reading Challenge runs in 95% of UK public libraries and online at Wild World Heroes launches on Saturday 19 June in Scotland and Northern Ireland, and on Saturday 10 July in England and Wales.
