Moon's Moat Nursery!
The Silly Squad Summer Reading Challenge 2020
The Summer Reading Challenge is an annual event delivered by public libraries across the UK. Produced by the Reading Agency, it is designed to encourage children aged 4-11 years continue their reading during the summer holiday break from school and discover the adventures that can be had with reading for pleasure.
This year, due to the impact of COVID-19, Silly Squad, Summer Reading Challenge 2020 will be delivered online from June to September and will celebrate funny books, happiness and laughter.
