In order to encourage the use of the school library we have developed a reading challenge called the Compass Reading Challenge. The challenge is designed to encourage children to go on a reading adventure and try out different genre of books that they might not naturally read – e.g. stories set in other times, fantasy, or non-fiction. There are postcards for children to fill in to recommend books to friends and family or they can send the postcard to me in the library. A record sheet has been prepared for each child with space for a sticker for each book read. We shall issue certificates for children who complete the challenge by World Book Day.
