Reading East MP Matt Rodda attended an event in Parliament to support The Reading Agency’s campaign to encourage all primary school children to take part in this year’s Summer Reading Challenge, which launches across England and Wales on Saturday 14 July.
To take part in the Mischief Makers Summer Reading Challenge, all children need to do is to head to their local library where they will be given a colourful collector’s map of Beanotown to keep a record of their reading journey. As children read at least six library books over the summer, they will collect stickers which will help them crack the clues and help Dennis, Gnasher and friends find the buried treasure!
Matt Rodda MP said: “I hope parents, grandparents and carers in Reading East will take their children to the library over the summer to sign up for the Summer Reading Challenge. It’s free, inclusive and, most importantly, makes reading fun. Last year 1842 children in Reading took part. I hope we can increase that number this year and support our local libraries, which are a valuable asset for our community.”
