Wild World Heroes
Wild World Heroes, Summer Reading Challenge 2021

The Reading Agency and Inverclyde Libraries are excited to introduce
Wild World Heroes, Summer Reading Challenge 2021; 19th June – 28th August

This year, the Challenge takes place in Wilderville, where our young heroes live.
Wilderville is a pretty cool place, but our heroes have been noticing some problems.
Helped by their trusted animal companions, they’re ready to take action to save the natural world.

This year’s themes are:

  • The Natural World
  • Action for the Environment
  • Fun with Friends
  • Young Heroes
  • Adventure

It’s so easy to take part!

From the 19th June
Visit the library to sign up

Children will be encouraged to read 6 books to complete the challenge. 

As they read books for the Challenge, their stickers will fix the environmental problem in each area and make Wilderville a better home for everyone.
