This summer children all over Blaenau Gwent are invited to join the Space Chase Summer Reading Challenge at their local library and take part in an out-of-this-world adventure, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the first ever moon landing by the Apollo 11 crew.

The Summer Reading Challenge is aimed at children aged 4 – 11 years, encouraging them to borrow and read any six libraries books of their choosing during the school holidays. It’s completely FREE to join the challenge and everyone who signs up will get their very own Mission Folder, to keep a record of their Summer Reading Challenge journey.

Children will team up with futuristic family The Rockets for an exciting space mission as they track down books nabbed by a mischievous band of aliens. As children read library books for the Summer Reading Challenge, they will receive special stickers, some with mysterious smells. By adding these stickers to their collectable mission folders, young readers will help the Rockets solve clues, dodge asteroids and discover the missing books, having lots of fun and adventures along the way.

Space Chase also has a website for children taking part in the Challenge where they can play games, enter competitions, and post book reviews. They can also use the brilliant Book Sorter to find great books recommended by other children – visit www.spacechase.org.uk to find out more.

Sue Wilkinson, CEO of The Reading Agency said: “At The Reading Agency, we tackle life’s big challenges through the proven power of reading. We know from our research that families and children love taking part in the Summer Reading Challenge, and we are proud to have been running the Challenge for twenty years this year. The space theme has been chosen to coincide with the 5Oth anniversary of the first moon landing. Last summer, children worked with illustrator Adam Stower to come up with ideas for the Space Chase adventure, and we hope the Challenge will inspire all children to use their local library and to read lots of great books throughout the summer and beyond."

The Space Chase Summer Reading Challenge will launch at our libraries in Blaenau Gwent from Saturday 13th July, ask at your local library for more information
