This year the Summer Reading Challenge has teamed up with Guinness World Records to establish a “Record Breakers” themed Challenge. Aimed and 4-11 year olds, Record Breakers brings together fact and fiction, challenging young readers to explore astonishing real-life achievements and world records. Children are encouraged to read six or more library books of their choice during the summer holidays with collectable incentives and rewards. Children can sign up at their local library at the start of the summer holidays– it’s absolutely free – and pre-schoolers can take part in the mini-Challenge.
Collecting stickers as they go, young readers will discover the weird, wonderful and wacky records from around the world in six different categories:
Cool Tech, Way to Go!, The Big Stuff, Animal Magic, People Power and Action! Adventure!
On days you can’t get to the library, there is still the Record Breakers website, with so much for children to discover and they can keep a record of their Challenge too. Children can also recommend books and decide
what to read next using the Book Sorter.
