Want to find out more…
The First Minister’s Reading Challenge is designed to encourage children to read for pleasure and develop a life-long love of books.
The scheme is being launched by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon to coincide with the start of the new school term. It is supported by Scottish Book Trust, who will roll it out into schools for primary four to seven pupils across Scotland.
The First Minister’s Reading Challenge aims to build on the work already taking place in schools across the country to encourage children to read widely, explore a range of books and develop a love of reading. The main focus of the Challenge is to encourage reading for pleasure and support schools, libraries and communities to build reading cultures.
The challenge is designed to encourage children to achieve their own reading goals, choosing from a specially-selected list of 100 books chosen by a special panel of academics, experts and teachers.
