About the Summer Reading Challenge

Libraries across Devon and Torbay are calling for children to sign up to the Silly Squad Summer Challenge and read six books this summer as part of the 2020 Summer Reading Challenge.

With the disruption caused by Covid-19 and the impact of social distancing on schools and libraries, the 2020 Challenge will look slightly different this year.  The challenge is launched in a new digital format designed to keep children engaged and interested in reading. It will support parents and carers with children at home, offer schools exciting ways to animate remote learning, and provide great content for those back in the classroom.

Last year the Challenge motivated 14,000 children in Devon and Torbay to keep reading to build their skills and confidence.
