Space Chase starts in your local library on Saturday 13 July and is FREE for all families to take part.
The Summer Reading Challenge 2019 takes place in space, in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the first Moon landing. Children taking part will help The Rockets, a futuristic family who are hot on the trail of a mischievous band of aliens. As children read library books, they will collect special stickers to fill their mission folder and help the Rocket family track down books that have mysteriously started to vanish from the Moon Library.
Children have until Saturday 14 September to read six library books and collect their exclusive Space Chase medal and certificate!
In order to help The Rockets with their mission and claim a Space Chase medal, children can read any six books from the range we have in the library; including picture books, stories, information books and audiobooks. They may even download eBooks and eAudiobooks from our eLibrary.
Find out how you can support children at the beginning of their reading journey, or check out our booklists offering recommended titles to support children with difficult situations and new experiences.
If you're stuck for ideas, The Reading Agency's online Book Sorter could be the answer! Children can tell the machine their age and the type of book they're looking for, in order to discover new titles recommended by others. And don't forget; children can reserve titles like these from our online catalogue for FREE!
In West Sussex, children receive their collector folder after Book 1 has been read and returned.
