The Silly Squad - Reading Challenges

The Summer Reading Challenge 2020 


We would like to encourage all children, from Year R to Year 6, to take part in The Summer Reading Challenge 2020!


The Silly Squad book collection comprises a selection of must-have reads for children aged 4-11, providing a wealth of inspiration for young readers choosing books for this year’s Summer Reading Challenge and beyond. Every title in the collection has been specially picked by children, librarians and industry experts to reflect the funny theme, with plenty of choices and genres to entertain readers at all stages. There are two lists - one for younger children (aged 4–7) and one for more confident readers (aged 8–11) - representing the best in contemporary children's fiction, non-fiction, picture books and graphic novels. Many of the books in the collection are brand new titles, which will be published in 2020.


At Prince Rock, we always try to instil a love of reading! Please find additional information below about how you can also support this at home.
