West Berkshire Libraries are calling for all 4-11 year olds to sign up to read six books this summer as part of Mischief Makers, Summer Reading Challenge 2018.
To complete the Challenge, children need to borrow and read any six library books between now and the end of September. The theme for the 2018 Summer Reading Challenge is Mischief Makers, inspired by the much-loved children’s title Beano, which celebrates its 80th anniversary this year.
Children will explore a map of Beano Town to find a hidden treasure chest full of pranks and become ultimate mischief makers! As they read library books for the Summer Reading Challenge, they receive special stickers and by adding these to their map young readers will help Dennis, Gnasher and friends solve clues and discover the treasure, having lots of fun and adventures along the way.
It’s free to take part in Mischief Makers. Children can simply sign up at their nearest library to receive their colourful treasure map of Beanotown to keep a record of their Summer Reading Challenge journey.
There are incentives along the way and golden medals for all who complete the Challenge, together with a voucher for a child visit to Beale Wildlife Park near Pangbourne.
There are also plenty of opportunities to get involved by volunteering to help run the Summer Reading Challenge at your local library over the coming months. If you are interested then please contact www.westberks.gov.uk/volunteer
