A WINTER Mini Reading Challenge has been launched to encourage children to curl up with a good book.
The challenge encourages youngsters to read at least three books over the winter months.
They’re then asked to upload the details of the books they have read to their online profile and write a short review for each one.
The challenge will be launched by Worcestershire County Council on Monday, December 2 and will run until Monday, January 13, providing plenty of opportunities for cosy winter nights on the sofa reading.
Redditch library will be on hand to help children find their favourite three books to read and to share their reviews.
Once three books have been read and reviewed, children will receive a virtual badge and can print off a Frozen Pugs of the North certificate to keep.
Carol Brown, library service manager at Worcestershire County Council said: “The Winter Mini Challenge is an ideal way to keep children reading during the festive season.
“There are some lovely books to read this Christmas, and the certificate for completing the challenge is something different for children to show friends and teachers when returning to school after the holidays.”
The theme of this year’s challenge is Frozen Pugs of the North, and is being run in partnership with Oxford Children’s Books.
