Winter Mini Challenge
The Reading Agency have partnered with inclusive publisher Knights Of for an 'Everyone is a Hero' themed Winter Mini Reading Challenge encouraging children to keep reading through the winter holidays by rewarding them for reading and reviewing books.
Every time children finish a book, they add it to their challenge website profile and leave a short review. If they read three books, they'll receive a virtual badge and special Everyone is a Hero certificate to print off and keep.
There's a whole host of fun activities, videos and reading recommendations, plus an exciting competition. Find out more on the Reading Agency website.
We have put together a special collection of Winter Mini Challenge eBooks.
The challenge will run until 15 January.

Bexley Libraries and Bexley Local Studies are working with London South East Children’s University, an award programme that encourages children aged 5-14 to get involved in lots of exciting activities and experiences in Bexley.
Children will receive their own Passport to Learning and gain a stamp for every hour of activity completed at a validated Learning Destination, as they work towards their Children’s University Award, Certificate, Diploma, Degree and eventually Fellowship. At the end of the year, we will be inviting pupils to special university-style graduation ceremonies to celebrate their success!
