Winter Mini Reading Challenge
Wed 9 Dec 2020
UPDATE: We're delighted to announce that The Reading Agency has decided to extend the Winter Mini Challenge! The Challenge will now run until Friday 19 February 2021.
The Reading Agency is teaming up with award-winning inclusive children’s publisher Knights Of to bring you an Everyone Is A Hero themed Mini Challenge, celebrating heroes in all their forms and keep children reading this winter. After the success of The Summer Reading Challenge’s new digital challenge platform, the Winter Mini Challenge allows children to create a reading profile, log and review books, get book recommendations, access fun activities and games and gain digital rewards for taking part! The challenge will launch on the 1st December and ends on Friday 15 January 2021.
- To take part, children simply read three or more books - these can be any books of their choice. Our team have also created a brilliant collection of books which are available to borrow from our libraries including board books and picture books for younger children, stories for young readers, junior fiction titles and books for teenagers. Every time they finish a book, they add it to their Challenge website profile and leave a short book review.
- Reaching their online reading goal will unlock a virtual badge and a special Everyone Is A Hero certificate to print off and keep!
- There’ll also be a whole host of fun activities, videos and reading recommendations, plus an exciting competition.
- Children can visit the Winter Mini Challenge website at www.wintermini.org.uk from 1 December 2020 to start rating and reviewing their books and enjoying the online activities.
