The Summer Reading Club is back on! Kids aged 5-12 can download a map and get reading now.
The Summer Reading Club aims to encourage children aged 5-12 to read over the summer break, from December 1 to January 31. Kids can read novels, magazines, comics and graphic novels, poetry, newspapers, diaries, reference materials, cookbooks, short story collections and more. Kids can even listen to audio books!
Every day children read or are read to, you can cross a dot off the reading map. It takes 15 days of reading to finish a map. Read to the end of the map to enter the Grand Prize Draw. The Grand Prize is a $100 book voucher. Two runners up will each receive a $50 book voucher. This year we want to end the summer read with a special mystery author event. We need to get 400 maps submitted to guarantee a visit from our surprise author - so every map counts!
Complete an ocean bonus task on the map and submit your task for it to be published on our online Kids Gallery. Each bonus task counts as a credit towards achieving our author visit as well!
