Curious creatures reading challenge set to sizzle this summer

Monday 19 November 2018

The curious creatures reading challenge is on this summer and kids across all the Frankston City libraries couldn’t be happier.

With a special prize for each reading milestone reached, Frankston City’s Coordinator Library Engagement, Susan Bentley, said children of all ages can’t wait to explore this year’s theme of curious creatures.

“Children and young people are encouraged to explore and connect with the curiosity of creatures,” said Ms Bentley.

“It’s wonderful to explore books that look into the strange, odd, peculiar, funny, unusual, bizarre, weird, eccentric, unexpected, unfamiliar and abnormal – like Ransom Rigg’s series Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.

“Why not discuss and consider the concept of curiosity and discovery with your child, while encouraging them to read and spending quality time together.

“You could even celebrate Australian classics with birthdays including Noman Lindsay’s The Magic Pudding, and May Gibbs’ Snugglepot and Cuddlepie.”

The Summer Reading Challenge finale is held at the end of the summer school holidays.

This is an invitation-only event especially for those children who have completed the challenge. A special surprise guest will be there for the celebrations.

Get your children involved with the National Summer Reading Club to discover more.
