Challenge Check-In #5

It’s time for a super-speedy Challenge Check-in!

We’re wishing a whoopsey-whiffling WELL DONE to everyone who has read their six books for The Big Friendly Read!

There’s still plenty of time to complete the Challenge if you’re still reading – we’d love to hear what your favourite books are this summer!

Have you taken part in any cool activities at your local library?
Tell us all about them in Chat

Thanks a squillion to everyone who entered our Dream Adventure competition –
our judges are having buckets of fun reading all of your awesome adventures!
