The Summer Reading Challenge 2021 is here!
Wild World Heroes is a celebration of reading,
nature and action for the environment.
Developed in partnership with World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF),
Wild World Heroes will inspire children to stand up for the future of our planet.
The Challenge focuses on taking action for nature and tackling
real-world environmental issues, from plastic pollution and deforestation
to wildlife decline and nature loss.
Children taking part in the Challenge will be able to join six fictional characters – ‘wild heroes’ – to help solve some of these threats, learning about the importance of the environment while helping to restore nature levels in the neighbourhood of ‘Wilderville’.
Wild World Heroes is brought to life with bespoke artwork by award-winning children’s author and illustrator, Heath McKenzie.
The challenge starts for Leicestershire on
Saturday 3rd July and runs to Saturday 5th September.
For 4 years – 12 years (including children who will be 4 by 31st August).
A limited number of stickers will be supplied for under 4s.
Children can join in the fun by reading, listening to or sharing six library books or ebooks throughout the summer and will be able to collect six special sticker sets – including some smelly ones – for their colourful collector’s folder.
So bring your children into the library from Saturday 3rd July to register and collect their folders and books!
