This event has ended.

The digital Summer Reading Challenge 2020

Silly Squad Summer Reading Challenge 2020 officially launched on Friday 5th June and you can join now until September. Take a look at the digital Summer Reading Challenge 2020 and don’t forget to tell your friends too.

The Silly Squad team ready to help children discover and read for fun, happiness and laughter. Children can join the Silly Squad on a new adventure by setting their own personal reading challenge to complete this summer. The new online platform will help to keep track of your books, reviews and the rewards you unlock along the way.

There will be loads of brilliant book suggestions and tips on how you can keep reading even while schools and libraries are closed. There’ll be heaps of silly activities, quizzes, videos, games and more to keep you entertained at home.

Jacqueline Wilson, author and supporter of the Summer Reading Challenge says: "I feel the Summer Reading Challenge is extra important this year! How sensible to have a Silly theme. We've all had to deal with serious and scary issues, so it's time for a bit of fun. There are so many comical and crazy children's books to cheer us all up. Let's get reading and get happy!"

And that’s not all … Bradford Libraries will be offering Silly Squad Summer Reading Challenge packs to children when libraries re-open (gradually) in July. Check here for updates.
