TBD Summer Reading Club – 2nd August 2021

Thank you so much to everyone who took part in Week 1 of my Summer Reading Club. I had such a great week seeing all of your entries! It was great to see so many children having so much fun reading over the summer. Every entry was absolutely amazing and choosing a winner was so difficult. The winning entry was a particularly daring detective who was reading AND swinging on a rope swing, which was seriously impressive! 

There is a certificate available to download here for all of the amazing detectives who entered Week 1 of my summer reading club.

Even 5 minutes of reading a day makes a big difference and all the better if children can really enjoy doing it! One of the aims of the Summer Reading Club is to share some of the great books that children love reading. Hearing what their peers are reading can really help children to try something new and who knows it might help them find their next favourite book or author.

For this week’s challenge I want to see your children’s favourite books. It might be an old favourite or might be a book that your child has only just discovered.


Share a photo of your favourite book and choose 3 words to describe it. The three words should help to ‘sell’ the book to someone else and encourage them to read it.

I will choose my favourite entry based on the three words that you use to describe your favourite book.

You can get creative with your photo if you like, choosing some props to add into your photo that also help to sell the book to someone else.

I can’t wait to see your entries!

As with any competition/contest there are some rules listed below for you to read. Please share your entry by Saturday 7th August at 5pm and make sure that you have tagged me so that I can see your entry. If I don’t reply to your entry, please contact me as it may be that I can’t see it because of your privacy settings.

Why not share the challenge with friends and family too? You could come up with some really interesting ideas for this week’s challenge.

I hope you enjoy your second week of my reading club. Thanks so much for joining in and happy reading!
