The summer reading challenge invites children to read six books during the school holidays.
Each child will receive a membership pack, prizes and, on completion, a special certificate. The theme is the ‘Big Friendly Read’ based on the 100th anniversary of ‘Big Friendly Giant’ author Roald Dahl’s birthday.
