Summer Reading Challenge 2018 – Mischief Makers

From Saturday 14 July, join Dennis, Gnasher and friends on this year’s Summer Reading Challenge and enjoy mischief and mayhem all summer. All you have to do is read six or more books over the holidays and just let us know what you’ve enjoyed most. There are lots of amazing activities to take part in too! For more information ask at your library or go to Your West Cheshire for the full list of events.

The Summer Reading Challenge is open to everyone aged 4-11 years and we love see all children taking part. If you’re unsure or a bit nervous about taking part, then we’ve got a social story (PDF,1820KB) for you to read, which explains what it’s all about and what to expect when you go to the library.
