For children in Western Australia, the Premier’s Summer Reading Challenge runs from 7 December 2009 until 8 February 2010.
On the ‘kids’ section of the website, you can find out about some authors and illustrators, register for the Challenge and download an entry form. (Make sure you get your mum or dad’s permission before doing this.)
And your parents can take part in the Challenge (and even win prizes), so make sure they get some reading in over the school holidays too! (Tell them to check out the ‘parents’ page on the website.)
There’s also a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page if your parents want to know more. Here’s an example:
Q: What should children read?
A: Children should read what interests them. This could be a variety of books, magazines, comics and newspapers. They all count towards completing the Challenge.
See – you can even read Alphabet Soup and it counts. (And you’d be reading that anyway, right?)
