Bring your Kids to the Library for a Big Friendly Read this Summer!

PrintLibraries across the UK are celebrating 100 years of the world’s favourite storyteller  Roald Dahl in The Big Friendly Read, and there will be a packed schedule of events across libraries in Wales.

Organised by The Reading Agency charity and the public library network, the annual Summer Reading Challenge,  is simple, fun and FREE to do. Children are encouraged to read six or more library books of their choice during the summer holidays with collectable incentives and rewards, plus a certificate, or medal for every child who completes the challenge.

The Big Friendly Read will encourage reading on a giant scale and highlight six key themes –invention, adventure, mischief, word play, child champions and friendship – that are explored in Roald Dahl’s most famous books,  and will encourage children to expand their own reading by exploring similar themes, fantastic facts, characters and stories across the best contemporary children’s writing.

Children can sign up at their local library at the start of  the summer holidays– it’s absolutely free .
