Space Chase - Summer Reading Challenge

The Rocket family head up the Space Chase in the Summer Reading Challenge 2019

Join the Space Chase Adventure from 13 July to 7 September 2019

Can you help our super space family, the Rockets, to track down books that have been nabbed by aliens?

As you read library books over the summer, collect special stickers (including some stinky ones!) to complete your mission folder.

Space Chase celebrates adventure, reading and fun! It is a must for all children who want an out-of-this-world adventure and encourages children aged up to 12 to borrow and read books.
