Winter Mini Reading Challenge for Children


The Winter Mini Challenge encourages children to keep reading through the winter holidays by rewarding them for reading and reviewing three books. This year we are thrilled to partner with publisher Nosy Crow for an extra special challenge inspired by There’s A Yeti in the Playground!, the hilarious new book from Blue Peter Award winners Pamela Butchart and Thomas Flintham.

Taking part online  – To take part in the Mini Challenge, children simply read three books of their choice, then rate and review them online at   The Challenge starts on Saturday 1 December 2018 and finishes on Friday 11 January 2019, so there’s plenty of time to get involved! Books added to the website during this period will count towards unlocking the Mini Challenge rewards: a special certificate to print off and keep, and a Winter Challenge badge that will appear on the user’s website profile.
