Winter Mini Challenge 2020
The Winter Mini Challenge is now live!
The Winter Mini Challenge are very excited to team up with award-winning inclusive publisher Knights Of to run an Everyone Is A Hero themed Mini Challenge – to celebrate heroes in all their forms and keep children reading this winter.
The Winter Mini Challenge runs until Friday 15 January 2021- it encourages children to keep up their reading habits over the winter holidays, with a free-to-access website featuring rewards and incentives for reading and reviewing books.
This year’s Mini Challenge features characters from books published by Knights Of, including those from Knights and Bikes (written by Gabrielle Kent; illustrated by Rex Crowle), High-Rise Mystery (written by Sharna Jackson; illustrated by Wumzum), and the Run series (written by Jason Reynolds; illustrated by Selom Sunu). Knights Of have also created a special booklist of their favourite titles to try during the Challenge. The list is full of heroes that inspire, challenge and push the definition of what it means to be a hero.
Children can visit the Winter Mini Challenge website at www.wintermini.org.uk from 1 December 2020 to start rating and reviewing their books and enjoying the online activities. They need to read three books to unlock the special virtual badge and certificate.
