Wild World Heroes: Go wild with Hertfordshire libraries' summer reading challenge

Hertfordshire libraries' summer reading challenge – which this year is called Wild World Heroes – launches on Saturday (July 10).

More than 20,000 children enjoyed the challenge in 2019 and this year the Reading Agency has teamed up with WWF UK to inspire youngsters.

In their reading packs this summer, children will join six young heroes on their adventure through fictional Wilderville and help them fix environmental problems.

The challenge is for children to read six books. For every two completed they can collect a set of transferable stickers for their Wilderville journey.

Libraries will also be giving children a 'Love Your Library, Love Your World' poster to complete and display in their windows at home.

A spokesman said: "We're aiming to create a community trail of brilliantly-coloured, imaginative posters and hope that families will take photos of theirs to share with us!"

Children who complete the challenge by September 4 will receive a medal, certificate and bookmark.
