The Summer Reading Challenge is the UK’s biggest reading for pleasure summer programme. Delivered in partnership with libraries, the Challenge combats the ‘summer holiday reading dip’, and encourages 4-11 year-olds to develop the habit of visiting their local library.
This year The Reading Agency is partnering with Science Museum Group to inspire children across the country to feed their imagination over the summer holiday, with a reading challenge focused on science and innovation.
Since 1999, the popular Challenge has encouraged children to read for pleasure over the summer holidays reading for pleasure over the summer holidays, building reading skills and confidence and helping to prevent the ‘dip’ in reading skills while children are out of school.
By providing fun reading activities, the Challenge supports families and teachers by providing free-to-access recreation and learning resources – all created to keep children inspired to read. The digital Summer Reading Challenge platform encourages children with limited physical access to the library to take part in the Challenge.
