Children are challenged to read three books of their choice during the winter holidays. Adding their books to the Summer Reading Challenge website will unlock special virtual rewards.

Logging books on the Summer Reading Challenge website between Monday 11 December 2017 and Friday 12 January 2018 will unlock a virtual Star Wars badge and a Mini Challenge completer’s certificate for each participant.

We’ll also have a whole host of Star Wars activities, quizzes and reading recommendations, plus an exciting new competition.
