The British Council in conjunction with the Young Readers Library are to launch the 2019 edition of the 30 Books Challenge, which will build on the success of the previous year.
The 30 Books Challenge scheduled to hold from 22nd July to 20th August is aimed at instilling a culture of reading in children and stimulate their minds while engaging them in a fun and productive way during the forthcoming summer holidays.
Adults/parents are encouraged to read along to bond with their children/wards and model the reading culture to them.
The theme for this year’s reading challenge is Space Chase.
The event is scheduled to happen in Port Harcourt, Kano, Lagos and Abuja.
Attendance to the launch event is free, but participants are to register for the challenge.
The challenge will culminate with an award ceremony in September to recognise outstanding participants and children authors.
