Wokingham Borough Libraries are encouraging children to snuggle up with a book this winter, by joining the national Winter Mini Challenge. The Reading Agency’s national campaign encourages children to keep reading through the winter holidays by rewarding them for reading and reviewing three books.
The Winter Mini Challenge starts on Monday 2 December 2019 and finishes on Monday 13 January 2020. To take part children are simply required to read any three books of their choice, then rate and review them here.
Rating and reviewing three books online will unlock a virtual badge and a special Pugs of the Frozen North certificate to print off and keep! Books added to the website during this period will count towards unlocking the Mini Challenge rewards.
Participants will also be able to access a whole host of fun activities and reading recommendations, plus an exciting new competition. In addition, pop into any of our Borough Libraries where there will be a selection of Pugs of the Frozen North activity sheets for children to complete.
“The winter months provide a fantastic opportunity to improve your little ones reading ability, as it’s easy to snuggle up with a book. That’s why we are delighted to be joining The Reading Agency’s national Winter Mini Challenge,” Said Elizabeth McDonald, young people and families outreach manager, Wokingham Borough Libraries.
“There are so many ways to take part, whether you want to pop in to borrow books from our libraries or would prefer to access our e-books instead. We’re encouraging as many children as possible to sign-up.”
The challenge has been inspired by 'Pugs of the Frozen North', a frosty adventure which features lots of pugs, written by Philip Reeve and Sarah McIntyre.
