The Summer Reading Challenge takes place during the school holidays every summer at a library near you.
The challenge, aimed at 4 to 11 year olds, is to read 6 or more books over the summer.
Summer Reading Challenge 2014
The 2014 Summer Reading Challenge runs from 12 July to 7 September.
This year's theme is Mythical Maze. Children will be challenged to find their way around a labyrinth that introduces them to fantastical creatures from the world of legend and mythology.
The Maze consists of six zones. Each zone is unique to a specific mythical creature but to find out which creatures, children must collect stickers to populate a free poster of the maze. Mythical creatures featured include Unicorn, Minotaur, Mermaid, Yeti, Dragon and the Loch Ness Monster.
There are unlock codes on the sticker sheets which will unlock surprises on the Mythical Maze website. Children can create their own profile on the website too and add books to the book sorter.
Munglers Quest Top Trumps cards will also be available to collect and swap with family and friends.
New this year, you can download the smartphone app to play games, gain rewards for every book read and bring the creatures of the maze to life.
Author and illustrator Sarah McIntyre has designed the challenge materials this year.
In 2013, more children than ever took part in the challenge in Nottinghamshire: 10,186 children registered, with 5,647 reading all 6 books to complete the challenge.
Created and coordinated by the Reading Agency, the Summer Reading Challenge focuses on reading for pleasure for children across the UK. Research has shown that children who take part go back to school with improved reading skills and a boost to their confidence.
