Silly Squad, Summer Reading Challenge logo

Get ready to get SILLY! The Summer Reading Challenge is running right through this summer - you can join up anytime.

For this year's Summer Reading Challenge we're inviting you all to join the Silly Squad.

In 2020 it’s all about funny books, jokes, happiness and having a laugh! Everybody between the ages of 4 and 11 can join in.

The libraries are still closed at the moment, but that doesn't mean you can't take part. There's plenty happening online, including games, puzzles, activities - and ideas and recommendations for what to read next.

Go to the Silly Squad website and follow the blue 'join the challenge' link to sign up - don't forget to tell a grown-up when you join, because we need them to agree that that's OK!

You don't have to wait for your library to open again - you can read funny books online

We have plenty of silly books (and a few sensible ones, too) ready to download. Check out the links below and scroll down their home pages to find enough free books to keep you reading right through the summer. Enjoy!
