Summer Reading Challenges 2022
Here are some of the summer reading challenges that kids will enjoy. Some involve visiting the library, others can be done by downloading reading lists online.
Gadgeteers’ Summer Reading Challenge
This year’s Summer Reading Challenge 2022 theme for The Reading Agency in the UK is Gadgeteers, arriving online and in your local library this summer.
Science is all around you! What do you love doing? Are you a brilliant baker? Or a mega music fan? Are you the tech wizard amongst your friends?
Join the Gadgeteers for the Summer Reading Challenge to discover the amazing science and innovation behind the world around you, including some of your favourite things!
They are teaming up with Science Museum Group for a very special science-themed Challenge that will inspire kids to use their creativity and imagination. Gadgeteers will feature amazing books, awesome rewards, and plenty of ideas for cool experiments and activities to discover the science all around you.
The aim of the challenge is to get children to read any six books of their choice from their library during the summer holidays.
Summer Stars National Reading Adventure 2022
The Summer Stars reading programme runs in public libraries throughout Ireland during summer, from the 13th of June until the end of August. All children throughout the country are invited to join the adventure and to enjoy the fun and pleasure of reading and writing over the summer. Summer Stars is non-competitive and every child who reads even one book / ebook is regarded as having completed the programme – and it’s all completely free!
Each child who registers for the programme at their local library joins in the fun of reading lots of exciting books during the summer.
Children can sign up for the programme in their local library at the start of the summer and are encouraged to read as many books as they can during the months of July and August.
Track your reading progress with reading cards which can be marked each time a book is read, online or in print form. These are available from your local library or for download and print here.
