Summer Reading Challenge | Coventry Libraries

The Summer Reading Challenge 2021 is now here! We can’t wait to introduce you to our brilliant heroes and get you set up on your reading journey!

They are teaming up with WWF for a very special nature-themed Challenge that will inspire you to stand up for the planet!

Take a trip to Wilderville, where the Wild World Heroes are learning how to make their town a cleaner, greener place for all the people and wildlife that live there. As you read books for the Challenge, you’ll get to go exploring all over Wilderville, from the woods to the farm and even the beach!

With your help, the heroes will transform Wilderville into an even cooler place to be, and will discover lots of brilliant books along the way!

Taking Part in the Challenge 

You can take part in the Challenge by signing up at your local library.

It’s completely free to sign up! Your library will give you a special Collector Poster map of Wilderville and help you find books to read.

As you read books for your Challenge, return to the library to receive stickers to add to your map – some of them even have smells!
Collect all the stickers to complete the Challenge and transform Wilderville. You’ll get a special Wild World Heroes certificate too!

Or you can take part in the Challenge on their website!

Choose a summer reading goal - they recommend six books, but you can challenge yourself to read as many as you like!

Each time you finish a book, add it to your website profile to unlock special badges and activities. You’ll unlock a Wild World Heroes certificate when you reach your summer reading goal.

There is plenty to do on their website, from games to activities and competitions.

They will be sharing top tips and videos from the WWF, plus fun crafts, reading recommendations and special messages from amazing authors and illustrators.

Reading Books for the Challenge

You can choose any books you like to count towards your Summer Reading Challenge. Fact, fiction, poetry, graphic novels, joke books - the choice is yours! eBooks and audiobooks count too, so you can read wherever and however you like!

Let’s get reading and get ready to become Wild World Heroes!
