Summer Reading Challenge 2019 - Space Chase

If your feeling inspired by all of the 'Get caught reading' photographs, why not head on down to the library and take part in the Summer Reading Challenge.

The Summer Reading Challenge, aimed at children 4-11 years, inspires children to read in the long summer break when their reading skills can decline without regular reading at school. The Summer Reading Challenge, co-ordinated by The Reading Agency, is run across the UK and has been around since 1999, celebrating it’s 20th Anniversary this year!

The 2019 Challenge, Space Chase, takes place in space, in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the first Moon landing.

The Rockets are a futuristic family living in space, and they are hot on the trail of a mischievous band of aliens! The aliens have been jumping from galaxy to galaxy, helping themselves to whatever they like. Now books have mysteriously started to vanish from the Moon Library and the Rockets are on the case.

With lots of help from children taking part in the Challenge, the Rockets will go on a mission to try and find the missing books and introduce the aliens to the wonders of the library, where they can share stories together. There’s plenty of peril along the way, from black holes and shooting stars to the murky depths of the alien ship.

The challenge for children is to read 6 library books of their choice over the summer holidays - Sign up at your local library, read 6 books and collect stickers and rewards.
