Book Record Breakers

Summer-Reading-Challenge-2015-banner

Only a few weeks left now of the Summer Reading Challenge 2015, taking place in public libraries.

Speaking from experience this scheme was a god-send to me when my daughter was young.  It enabled us to visit the library each week of the summer holidays not only to exchange books but also to take part in the extra activities which are always held during the programme.  The activities, which are usually free or have a very small charge, are along the theme of the programme.  One improvement introduced is the linked website offering games, activities etc the children can access at home.

I always promote the programme from our school library and send out flyers so that parents know about the scheme and the timetable of activities over the summer.  So I’m hoping that some children return to school having taken part.

The link below has some interesting reading records which I found interesting;  http://www.theguardian.com/childrens-books-site/2015/jul/24/the-best-reading-records-of-all-time?CMP=share_btn_tw
