We’ve created this page to inspire you to read loads over the Summer! We hope you’ll find new stories to love and new ways of reading to enjoy!

For each week of the Summer Holiday, we will challenge you to find a text that you think is a brilliant example of a quality we are looking for. We will also set you a Staycation Reading Challenge each week. This could be a task to complete or something to design to help improve reading experiences for yourself and other people. 

We will also share with you a short text or extract…just for you to enjoy!

Design or create an outfit or  costume inspired by a character from another place or special celebration like this carnival picture:

Asha And The Spirit Bird

by Jasbinder Bilan

Here is the author introducing their book.

Imagine you are attached to a balloon, where would you like to float to?

What would you see as you are floating up high?

Create a piece of artwork or a poem to share your ideas with us.

Share photos of your Reading Challenge here!
