Christmas Reading Mini-challenge #bedslibraries

Throughout the school holidays from 12th December 2014 to 6th January 2015, children are challenged to:
- borrow any three books you like from the library
(don't forget there are lots of suggestions for brilliant books on the Virtual Library website)
- hide away from the cold (and family) for a good read
- create or update your profile on the Summer Reading Challenge website
- when you've logged your third book, you’ll qualify for a virtual badge – and a secret video reward!

Watch this video of Cressida Cowell (author of How to Train Your Dragon) talking about the scheme.

There's more information for parents and carers on the Challenge Facebook page too.
