The Winter Mini Challenge

Published: 3 December 2021



The Winter Mini Challenge encourages children to continue reading over the winter holidays with a free, digital platform offering rewards and prizes for continuing to read. The Reading Agency has teamed up with WWF-UK to continue the Wild World Heroes' theme for the Winter Mini Challenge. This time, the Wild World Heroes characters will be going on an Arctic adventure to explore and celebrate our natural world. Following the COP26 climate talks in Glasgow, the theme will inspire children to explore ways of helping to save the planet. With ideas from WWF-UK, the Challenge focuses on acting for nature and tackling environmental issues.

The Challenge is run through The Reading Agency's digital platform and to complete the Challenge, children simply read three or more books of their own choice. Each time they finish a book, they add it to their Challenge website profile and leave a short book review. Derby Libraries will be supporting the Challenge with Arctic themed book displays in our libraries to inspire children and young people to read their three books and we would love to see families across the city getting involved!

The Winter Mini Challenge will launch on 1 December and end on 16 January. There is more information on the Reading Agency website and children can sign up the Challenge at
