Wild World Heroes Summer Reading Challenge 2021

Summer Reading Challenge 2021 Wild World Heroes

Get ready for Wild World Heroes, Summer Reading Challenge 2021, online and in libraries across Northern Ireland from 19 June to 18 September 2021.

This year we are teaming up with The Reading Agency and WWF for a very special nature-themed Challenge. Wild World Heroes is a celebration of nature and action for the environment which children aged 4 – 11 can sign up to for free by calling into their local library.

Each child will choose their own personal reading goal then read any books to collect special stickers to fill their reading record and other rewards along the way. Everyone who completes their personal challenge will receive a certificate and a medal.

Exciting events and activities will take place online throughout the summer months alongside a fun, immersive digital platform full of great reading activities for all children to continue the fun at home. Here you will also find ideas from the WWF to help tackle real-world environmental issues such as plastic pollution, deforestation and wildlife decline. Create your digital profile here

Call into your local library to sign up to the Summer Reading Challenge and join the Wild World Heroes in Wilderville to discover how you can make a difference to the environment too!
