Children can join the Animal Agents this summer at their local Norfolk Library
During the summer of 2016 over 13,000 children participated in the Great Big Read Summer Reading Challenge. 54% were inspired to read 6 books and were rewarded with a medal and a certificate. In 2017 Norfolk Libraries are aiming to encourage even more children to complete the Animal Agents Summer Reading Challenge, having fun with books and keeping up their reading.
For the 2017 challenge there’s something peculiar happening at the local library – and that’s where the Animal Agents come in! It’s a detective agency manned by all kinds of clever animals – furry, scaly and slippery – and these guys are out to crack the case with a little help from their friends.
From solving the case of the graffiti writing to the strange case of a missing lunch, children will join in the fun with the Animal Agents by reading along. As children read library books on the Summer Reading Challenge, they will receive a host of stickers, some with mysterious smells. By collecting the stickers on their collector folder, young readers will help the Animal Agents find out what’s really been going on behind the scenes and who is to blame!
Children can visit any Norfolk Library or mobile library during the summer to start the adventure. Animal Agents is a must for all eagle-eyed children and will test their skills and ingenuity along the way. But with the Agents on their side, solving these mysteries comes with a large helping of fun!
With a challenge for pre-school children and summer events there is something for all the family at your library this summer.
