Realising the potential of Children in Care

Mischief Makers – the Summer Reading Challenge coming to Kent libraries

Posted on by Judy Molyneux

Children aged 4-11 are invited to join the Summer Reading Challenge in all Kent’s libraries, from 14 July to 15 September. The theme for 2018 is Mischief Makers; celebrating the 80th anniversary of the much loved comic, Beano.

Children taking part in the Challenge will follow clues to explore their colourful collector’s map of Beanotown; meeting Dennis, Gnasher and friends along the way. As children read library books, they will collect special stickers to help them find the mysterious buried treasure.

It’s FREE and it’s FUN!

To take part in the Challenge, all children need to do is sign up at their nearest library. When they have completed the Challenge by reading 6 books they will receive a medal and a certificate. There’s a website to add to the fun too.

Last year over 18,000 children took part in Animal Agents and one parent said

This was great for both my daughters. My 8 year old discovered new authors as a result and my 5 year old has moved up 2 reading levels due to her summer reading>
