Local library summer reading challenge

On the first day of the school holidays I took my two to our local library. We always go in the summer; it's something to do that takes up a bit of time, and there's nothing wrong with reading a few extra books! This year (as usual) there is a Summer Reading Challenge, this one is called Story Lab.

When you sign up at the library you get a cardboard "lab" to take home, and every time you read a book you get a set of stickers that complete the picture on the "lab". Once you've read 6 books you get a certificate to say you've completed the challenge.

All the stickers in place :-)
My two have really enjoyed this year's challenge. They've read lots of different books. My eldest has taken a few non-fiction books out and has been telling me all about countries around the world or supercars! My youngest took out a book called How High Is The Sky, a really lovely story with facts at the end about our atmosphere and space. 

We went into the library on Monday to return our books and get our stickers and were told there was a treasure hunt to do around the library too. They both rushed off to do that, which gave me time to browse the fiction section for a change!

There's still plenty of time to sign up for the Summer Reading Challenge at your local library, or if you don't fancy that you can sign up on the Story Lab website
