Winter Mini Reading Challenge
Dates: Friday, 1 December 2023–Monday, 19 February 2024
Suitable for: the Winter Mini Reading Challenge is aimed at children aged 4–11, but children of any age can take part.
The Winter Mini Challenge is an online, bite-size 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.
