Circus Stars is the summer reading challenge held at many libraries throughout the UK. Aimed at children of 4-12 yrs it's a fun way to encourage reading over the summer hols. Everyone who takes part is challenged to read up to 6 books (more if they wish) - they talk about the books they've read and get stickers, rewards and quiz sheets, so it's lots of fun.
The indoor writer is volunteering over the summer at Steyning library (West Sussex) and getting to meet lots of young book lovers. She says: "Spending several hours surrounded by books, talking books with kids who love books - it doesn't get much better than this!"
So if you have children between 4-12 years then check out your local library (many are running the challenge) and encourage them to become CIRCUS STARS!
