Record Breakers – Summer Reading Challenge

Free summer fun for families!

The Summer Reading Challenge for children starts in all Kent libraries on Saturday 11 July.

The Challenge, organised by The Reading Agency charity and your local library, encourages children aged 4 to 11 to read 6 books during the long summer break.

Children will collect stickers for reading whichever library books they choose. When they read 6 books they will receive a fantastic medal and certificate.

This year’s theme is Record Breakers – explore some of the astonishing real-life achievements and world records featured in the Guinness World Records books. Children can find competitions, challenges, author interviews, news, and the Book Sorter which recommends what children might like to read next on the Record Breakers website throughout the year.

Children can also earn 6 Kent Children’s University Learning Destination credits for reading 6 books.

Those taking part in the Summer Reading Challenge will be able to download a free mobile app onto their devices which will recognise the characters, unlock games and trigger audio visual content. This year, the app will enable children to access the ‘Book Sorter’, where children can share their favourite reads and discover books recommended by other children.
