KEEP READING: Bushey Library launches ‘Wild World Heroes’ summer book challenge

 Published on: 16th July 2021   |   By: Lizzie Ellis   |   Category: Uncategorized

Bushey Library is taking part in a free summer reading challenge, to encourage children to keep their minds active by reading throughout the summer holidays.

The Wild World Heroes Summer Reading Challenge launched on July 10 across Hertfordshire libraries and children can sign up for the challenge at Bushey Library on Sparrows Herne Road.

Mary Malone, Bushey Library manager said: “This year of all years it is particularly important to encourage children to keep reading through the summer break so that they have a chance to catch up and get back into their studies quickly when they return to school in September. This is a fantastic and free summer activity for children during the school holidays.”

In the Wild World Heroes challenge, children join six heroes in their adventure through ‘Wilderville’ helping heroes fix environmental problems they have noticed in their town. The challenge is for the children to read six of the exciting books, including Ebooks and Audio Books.

For every two books a child reads, they collect a set of transferable stickers, by using clues and the town map they can help the six heroes with their journey to make the fictional ‘Wilderville’ more environmentally friendly.

The challenge runs throughout summer and all children who finish the challenge by September 4 will receive a certificate and a medal and a Wild World Heroes bookmark.
