The Reading Agency Winter Mini Challenge - We’re Snow Excited!

Published 28th November 2018

Christmas is coming early to Inspire Libraries, with the launch of the Reading Agency’s Winter Mini-Challenge.

Fans of The Summer Reading Challenge, which encourages children aged 4 to 11 to keep reading during the long school summer holidays, are invited to take on a mini-challenge this time and are being asked to read three books over the festive period.

9,472 children took part in the 2018 Summer Reading Challenge across Inspire Libraries and we’re hoping we can encourage the same avid young readers as well as some new ones, to take part in this year’s winter mini-challenge!

This year’s Challenge promises to be SNOW MUCH FUN! With the Reading Agency teaming up with publishers Nosy Crow, to bring a winter reading challenge inspired by ‘There’s a Yeti in the Playground!’, the great new book by Pamela Butchart and Thomas Flintham

The Winter Mini Challenge is run through the Winter Mini Challenge website. To take part, children simply read three books of their choice over the winter holidays, then add each book to their Winter Reading Challenge website profile and leave a short book review.

Rating and reviewing three books online over the winter holidays will unlock a virtual badge and a special There's A Yeti In The Playground certificate to print off and keep.

The Winter Mini Challenge starts on Saturday 1 December and finishes on Friday 11 January, so head down to your local library where we've got plenty of brr-illiant books to suit all ages and interests!

All books added to the website during this period count towards unlocking the Mini Challenge rewards.
