Cornwall Council are delivering the 2020 Summer Reading Challenge online.  This is so they can make sure they continue to reach as many children and families as possible.

The all-new digital Summer Reading Challenge with its Silly Squad theme launched earlier than usual. This was to keep children reading over the summer. While also supporting parents and carers with children already at home.

Children taking part in the Challenge will join the Silly Squad. A hilarious cast of characters ready to bring Cornwall and the UK a seriously silly summer.

Through the digital Summer Reading Challenge, we will:

  • Offer themed activities. As well as space to share recommendations and rewards for keeping up with reading
  • Ensure the programme remains free of charge for all
  • Create much-needed support for libraries, educators, publishers, authors and parents. All with the same goal: to inspire kids to read for pleasure
