Hutt City Libraries Summer Reading Challenge 2018-19
• International research shows the ‘summer slide’ (where reading gains slip over the long summer holidays) is a major barrier to ongoing literacy achievement
• Tamariki who have access to books and learning experiences during the long holidays show less of a decrease (or even an improvement!) in their reading levels when they return to kura/school
• The Big Read motivates tamariki to read books and participate in activities. Our friendly librarians are always available to provide support
Any child aged 0-12 years can sign up for the challenge at any of our eight Hutt City Libraries from 1 December.
The entire whānau can join in, this year we have The Little Read for ages 0-5 years; The Big Read for ages 5-12; and Explore, Read, Relax for rangatahi and adults.
It’s a great way to support your child’s reading and help them maintain the reading achievements they have made through Hutt City Libraries Summer Reading Challenge 2018-19
