Holly (aged 9) and her mum have a joint online blog where they talk about what they have read, both now and in the past. Holly took part in the Summer Reading Challenge this year and wrote the following post about how much she enjoyed the experience.
Holly's blog post
For my next Fun Corner Post, I wanted to write about the Summer Reading Challenge.
In England, there is a library challenge every summer and I do it every year. It is really good because it gets people to have more fun reading and visiting their local library to get books. This is also a good idea because you have to read six books in six weeks or so and the end of the challenge is when you have finished all your books. You get a certificate and a medal. So next year, do this challenge at your local library because it is so much fun!
My six books were:
1. Island of the Blue Dolphin by Scott O'Dell
2. Tales of Trouble Doctor Doom by Ceci Jenkinson
3. Molly Moon and the Morphing Mystery by Georgia Byng
4. Bad Cat, Good Cat by Lynne Reid Banks
5. Ruby Holler by Sharon Creech
6. Mr Gum and the Power Crystals by Andy Stanton
(Note from mum: a few of these are different to the ones Holly had originally picked at the beginning because of either not enjoying a couple of the books or because some had been reserved and had to be taken back to the library).
Our local library
Our local library is Old Marston Library. It is the smallest in Oxfordshire!
And what is great is that on 22 September we will be having a 50th birthday party for the library with lots of fun activities, including an illustration workshop with Neill Cameron. We will report back on that soon!
