Children are being invited to explore Beanotown during this year’s Summer Reading Challenge at Coventry libraries.
Children are given stickers for their collector’s map when hiring and reading books from the library and help Dennis and Gnasher solve clues to find the hidden chest of pranks to become ultimate ‘Mischief Makers’. The challenge is to read a minimum of six books and joke books, audiobooks, fact books and e books all count.
The ‘Mischief Makers‘ Summer Reading Challenge celebrates the 80th anniversary of the Beano comic and is co-ordinated by libraries and the Reading Agency and is free to join. Children can sign up at any Coventry library and receive their collector’s poster and staff will be happy to help children choose books they enjoy.
Councillor Kevin Maton, Cabinet Member for Education and Skills, said: “The Summer Reading Challenge is a great way for children to visit their local library and encourage them to get involved in reading more in a fun way during their holidays. They are always very popular and the children also receive a medal and certificate if they complete the challenge.”
In addition to the medal and certificate for all children completing the challenge, there are also extra games and competitions on the Mischief Makers website.
The Summer Reading Challenge runs in Coventry from Saturday 14 July and until Monday 10 September. For more information visit www.coventry.gov.uk/src
