Hi Wild World Heroes,

BRRR it’s getting chilly! Are you having fun reading this winter?

We’re happy to see so many of you joining the Winter Mini Challenge. It’s the perfect time to keep reading. For anyone who hasn’t joined in yet – it’s not too late!

The Winter Mini Challenge will continue until Sunday 20 February 2022 so there’s plenty of time to discover your favourite stories and enjoy an Arctic adventure. Read three or more books and receive a fun virtual badge and certificate as a reward!

Once you’ve read a book, add it to your website profile and write a review to let everyone know what you thought. We have a handy Reading Record to print out and help you keep track of your fave winter reads. CLICK HERE to get yours!

If you don’t have a profile yet, getting one is easy: tap the ‘Join’ button at the top of this page to sign up. If you’re joining us for the first time, you’ll need a parent or carer to help you.

Fun stuff

We have oodles of inspiration for you in our official Wild World Heroes Winter Mini Booklist. CLICK HERE to find brilliant book recommendations and add to your wish list!

You can continue the adventure with a brand-new Wild World Heroes activity sheet, featuring a winter word-search, anagram games, and more! Download and print yours HERE. Can you complete all the activities?
