The annual Mayor’s Reading Challenge kicked off on 31 July.
In its eighth year, the Mayors Reading Challenge supports early literacy development by challenging parents and carers to engage in regular reading experiences with their child or children in a fun and rewarding way.
The challenge is open to children aged 0 to 5 years of age. It runs during August 2018 to tie in with the Children’s Book Council of Australia Book Week celebration.
Participants can register at all Frankston, Carrum Downs and Seaford. Children and parents collect prizes for every 20 reading experiences. After a month of happy reading, participants collect a reading rewards pack, including a certificate signed by The Mayor.
