This year’s theme sees the Gadgeteers continue their adventures from the Summer Reading Challenge. The setting for the Winter Mini Challenge is a festive party at the Gadgeteers' community centre. When a sudden snowstorm whirls in, the Gadgeteers have to use their ingenuity, creativity and curiosity to keep everyone entertained until the weather brightens. 

How to take part in the Winter Mini Reading Challenge

If not already done so, you'll need to register your child on the Reading Challenge website.

Your child will then be able to access rewards and incentives for reading and reviewing books, as well as fun activities, videos and reading recommendations.

To take part in the Winter Mini Reading Challenge:

  • Read 3 or more books – these can be any books of their choice
  • After reading the books, they can add them to their profile on the challenge website and leave a short book review
  • Once they've reached their reading goal, they'll unlock a virtual badge and a special certificate to print off and keep
