Summer Reading Challenge 2021

Calling all Heroes!

Wild World Heroes, has now launched in all Hertfordshire libraries .This year The Reading Agency is working together with the WWF to inspire young  readers to stand up for our Planet!

We are inviting this year’s young readers to take on our Free Challenge and join the six  Wild World Heroes in the fictional town of ‘Wilderville’ where they have noticed some environmental problems in their town! Working together the six young heroes would like children to join their adventure and help them solve these problems.

To take part the children are challenged to read any six books. Our libraries have a ‘World Full’ of exciting books to read, including eBooks and eAudioBooks available on our libraries BorrowBox, so the children can have fun and go ‘Wild’ with their choices.

For every two books read, the children can collect stickers (some are scratch and sniff). Using the clues and the town map, they can help the heroes on their adventure through ‘Wilderville’ helping them solve the enviromental problems and  making it a better place for people and nature.

The challenge runs for the whole of the Summer holidays, all the children who finish the challenge by Saturday 4 September will receive a certificate, medal and a Wild Heroes Bookmark. So visit your local Hertfordshire Library and get your child signed up to their own environmental reading challenge, and become a Wild World Hero caring about their planet too.
