Summer Reading Challenge

Pack your bags, we’re headed for Wilderville! It’s a pretty cool place, but there are lots of things that the Wild World Heroes can do to make their town even better for the people and animals that live there. Join the Wild World Heroes for the Summer Reading Challenge and discover how you can make a difference to the environment too.

Children aged 4-12 years can take part in Wild World Heroes at all Leicestershire Libraries, an exciting free reading challenge from Saturday 3 July to Saturday 4 September.

Children can join in the fun by reading or listening to six library books, eBooks or eAudiobooks throughout the summer and will be able to collect six special stickers – including some smelly ones – for their colourful collector’s poster. They will also be rewarded with special incentives as they read their books and a certificate and medal when they complete the challenge.

All children taking part are entitled to free admission to Bosworth Battlefield and 1620s House & Garden at Donington-le-Heath by showing their Wild World Heroes poster at the admission point (one child per full–paying adult). Please check the relevant website for information on any requirement to pre-book a visit, which may be necessary under any ongoing restrictions relating to the Covid-19 pandemic.
