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 something to hold your book open on the right page so you can have two hands free for eating snacks.

Wild Spark

Write a shelf-tab that could go into a book shop explaining why you loved a particular book.
