Dozens of youngsters enjoy a fun day out as a reward for reading six books during the summer break
Children who completed Exmouth Library’s Summer Reading Challenge have been treated to a party at World of Country Life.
Two parties were held on September 1 and 2, to reward dozens of youngsters aged four to 11 for reading six books during the summer break.
There was comedy entertainment and an appearance by the Exmouth Town Crier Roger Bourgein, as well as staff from the library.
This is the second year that World of Country Life have joined forces with the library to help the children celebrate.
Park manager James Turner said: We are thrilled to work with Exmouth Library again on their Summer Reading Challenge. It is great to see children being encouraged to read books when today there is so much emphasis on technology. The children enjoy a great day of fun here at their very own leavers’ party – a great way to round off a fantastic project!”
Exmouth Library reported that some of the books that proved particularly popular with the children this year were the Tom Gates series by Liz Pichon, books by David Walliams, and the Rainbow Magic series by Daisy Meadows. However the children read a huge variety of books including non-fiction.
