Children aged 3-12 can take part in a giant reading adventure at Castle Donington Community Library this summer. The Big Friendly Read is an exciting reading challenge taking place in all Leicestershire libraries, including mobiles, beginning July 9. The event also celebrates 100 years of Roald Dahl, the world’s favourite storyteller.
Children sign up to the challenge for FREE. All they have to do is read six library books or e-books throughout the summer and will be able to collect six limited edition Quentin Blake cards to slot into a fold-up wallet. Participants will also be rewarded with fun rainbow glasses as they read their books and a certificate and medal when they complete the challenge.
All children taking part are entitled to free admission to Bosworth Battlefield by showing their The Big Friendly Read wallet at reception
(one child per full–paying adult).
