Gateshead libraries are calling for children to sign up to read six books this summer as part of Mischief Makers, Summer Reading Challenge 2018.
The Summer Reading Challenge asks 4-11 year olds to borrow and read any six library books over the summer over three visits. The theme for the 2018 Summer Reading Challenge is Mischief Makers, inspired by the much-loved children’s title Beano, which celebrates its 80th anniversary.
Children will explore a map of Beanotown to find a hidden treasure chest full of pranks and become ultimate mischief makers! As children read library books for the Summer Reading Challenge, they will receive special stickers, some with mysterious smells. By adding these stickers to their map, young readers will help Dennis, Gnasher and friends solve clues and discover the treasure, having lots of fun and adventures along the way.
To take part in Mischief Makers, all children need to do is sign up at their nearest library where they will be given a colourful collector’s map of Beanotown to keep a record of their Summer Reading Challenge journey.
Mischief Makers launches in libraries across Gateshead on 21st July and runs until 1stSeptember.
There’s a whole programme of events and activities planned in Gateshead libraries for families over the summer to celebrate the Summer Reading Challenge
