Summer Reading Challenge 2021
Here you can find key information about Wild World Heroes, Summer Reading Challenge 2021.
The 2021 Summer Reading Challenge will be a celebration of reading, nature and action for the environment. Developed in partnership with WWF, the world's leading independent conservation organisation, Wild World Heroes will inspire children to stand up for the future of our planet.
The Challenge will launch in libraries in Scotland on Saturday 19 June and in libraries in England and Wales on Saturday 10 July.
Delivery of promotional materials is coordinated so library authorities receive items in good time for these start dates. Any authorities planning significantly earlier start dates for their Challenge do so at their own risk. Please contact the Summer Reading Challenge team at the earliest opportunity if you require assistance with this matter.

Wild World Heroes Book Collection
The Summer Reading Challenge book collection is a list of must-have reads for children aged 4-11. The aim of the collection is to provide inspiration for children choosing books for their Challenge, as well as for the libraries, schools, community organisations, parents and carers supporting them in reaching their reading goals.
We are now open for applications from library staff for the 2021 Book Collection Readers Panel. Panel members will read and review the titles we receive from children's publishers and provide feedback that will shape the official Challenge book collection..
