Summer Reading Challenge By Kacy Lawless Age 10

Over the Summer I have been doing a reading challenge introduced to us by our local library. I have found it very fun and found out about new authors. I have recently finished my last book because I started a week before my Summer holidays started. Summer and Kira started after me, Kira is on her fourth book and Summer gave it a go but wasn't really interested so only got up to her second book.

The Summer reading is actually called The Big Friendly Read after The Big Friendly Giant (BFG) because it is Roald Dahl's 100th Anniversary on the 13th September.

For the Summer Reading Challenge you have to read six books in six weeks. I have tried to chose books from authors that I have not read/heard of before. I don't remember the first book I read unfortunately but I do remember that it was by Vivan French, an author I read books from when I was seven/eight. I do remember the other five books I read:

1. Main Street: Needle And Thread (Ann M.Martin)
2. My Parent's Are Driving Me Crazy (Pete Johnson)
3. The Mermaid's Sister (Holly Webb)
4. Lily (Holly Webb)
5. Second Term At L'etoile (Holly and Kelly Willoughby)

Main Street: Needle And Thread like The Mermaid's Sister was the second of a series I had already started from previous visits to the library.

My Parents Are Driving Me Crazy was a very funny book and I would definitely read another book by Pete Johnson.

I read two Holly Webb books because I really enjoyed the first one and I wanted to try another one from a different series. They both had twists and plots that you didn't expect. The first Holly Webb book was part of a series I had already started. The second Holly Webb book was the first of a series I am continuing now.

Main Street: Needle And Thread like The Mermaid's Sister was the second of a series I had already started from previous visits to the library.

Second Term At L'etoile was a second book in a series I had been reading and I enjoyed it just as much as the first one.

 There are prizes to earn along the way as well, after two books you get a book mark, after four books you get an origami fortune teller, and finally after all six books you get a certificate and a medal. Overall I really enjoyed The Big Friendly Read.
