A New Chapter's Summer Reading Challenge

Here at A New Chapter, we realise how difficult it can sometimes be to keep motivating children to read over the school holiday period. We've seen quite a few summer reading challenges throughout our time and have decided to create our own, focusing entirely on varieties of diverse and inclusive books and authors.

​How Does the Summer Reading Challenge Work?

Each one of our challenges are divided up into 10 books, so your child is not too overwhelmed or pressured. They vary across a range of levels in each year group and encompass several genres and text types. The challenges start at, 'I am going to be in Reception', elevating up to 'I am going to be in Year 11'.

Every one of the challenges come with an easily printed sheet where the children can put their name and tick off their progress each time. It would be fabulous for children to take these to show their next teacher.


​Chances to Win From Completing the Challenge

As well as showing their new teacher, there are prizes for completing the reading challenge. If you can send proof that you have read all ten books to or send a tweet to @anewchapterbks on Twitter, you will be entered into a competition where one person in each year group will win a £10 book voucher for A New Chapter.


There will be an overall winner who will receive a £50 voucher to use on our online store. There will also be a £50 voucher for their new teacher or school to use too.

​Where Do I Find The Books And More Information

On the store page of the A New Chapter site, you'll see a section to the left-hand side called 'Summer Reading Challenge', here you will find all the books. The sections are divided into individual year groups and discounted bundles of all the books will be available too.
