Wild World Hero CarysWild World Heroes Summer Reading Challenge started on Saturday 10th July and finishes on Saturday 11th September 2021
This year the Summer Reading Challenge takes place in Wilderville, where our young heroes live. Wilderville is a pretty cool place but our heroes have been noticing some problems. Helped by their trusted animal companions, they're ready to take action to save the natural world. Are you ready to be a Wild World Hero too?

Join Wild World Heroes and pick up your Wild World Heroes Summer Reading Challenge Pack. Inside the pack you will find everything you need to take part in this year's Summer Reading Challenge: the Wild World Heroes poster, three sticker sets and three bookmarks. Receive a sticker set for each library book you read – there are 6 stickers to collect.
When you have read your books tick them off on the bookmark and show it to library staff to collect your reward.

  • Read 6 library books to get a Wild World Heroes Certificate
  • Read 12 library books to receive a Wild World Heroes Pencil
  • Read 18 library books to achieve the Wild World Heroes Medal
