The Winter Mini Challenge is an online, bitesize version of our annual Summer Reading Challenge. This summer, The Reading Agency teamed up with the Youth Sport Trust and public libraries to bring you Ready, Set, Read! – a Summer Reading Challenge that empowered young people to read and play, keeping children's minds and bodies active over the summer break. Following the success of this, we are delighted to continue the Ready, Set, Read! theme into the Winter Mini Challenge, brought to life once more by our amazing illustrator, Loretta Schauer. Join the six characters as they have fun on a winter walk to the library and spark a love of reading even in the most reluctant of readers.
