About the Summer Reading Challenge
The annual Summer Reading Challenge is aimed at 4- 11 year olds and their families, and is simple and fun.
Silly Squad Summer Reading Challenge 2020 is a digital challenge and children can register and take part by visiting sillysquad.org.uk.
Once registered children can create their own Silly Squad profile and set their own Summer Reading Challenge goal by deciding how many books to read this summer. Our digital collections provides 24 hour access to children's eBooks and eAudiobooks and are free to download.
The Summer Reading Challenge is organised by The Reading Agency charity.
