Children can get involved in Silly Squad Summer Reading Challenge
Despite libraries not being open at the moment, children can still enjoy the Summer Reading Challenge with support from Wiltshire Council with this year's campaign having a very 'silly' theme.
The challenge, organised nationally by The Reading Agency, is being carried out digitally this year with children being encouraged to join the 'Silly Squad' - a colourful array of cartoon animals.
An online platform has been created so families can sign-up safely, create a personal profile, set their own reading goals, view book recommendations and access guides to e-learning.
There will also be a forum to chat to friends, play games, download and print activities, as well as family activities with rewards and unlockable content to keep children and families engaged throughout the summer months. The platform is FREE for children and families to use.
Later in the summer, Wiltshire Council will set their own fun reading challenges linked to the campaign.
For more information, and to get involved, please visit the Summer Reading Challenge website.
Visit Wiltshire Council's eBooks, e-Audio and eMagazines page, which has an extensive list of e-reading materials.
