The Winter Mini Challenge is an online, bitesize version of our annual Summer Reading Challenge. This year’s theme sees the 6 characters continue their adventures from the Summer Reading Challenge as they have fun on a winter walk to the library and spark a love of reading even in the most reluctant of readers.

The Challenge encourages children to keep up their reading habits over the winter holidays.
