Four-year-old boy wins Stourport reading challenge
7:40am Tuesday 24th September 2013 in News
A FOUR-year-old boy has won the summer reading challenge at Stourport Library.
Jamie Henson, of Stourport, won a copy of Ian Whybrow's Harry and the Dinosaur: A Monster Surprise signed by the author in a prize draw for completing the challenge early.
This year's reading challenge, where children aged four to 12 had to read six books over the summer, runs until Saturday.
Every child who completes the challenge will receive a certificate and an invite to the award ceremony where local children's author Helen Wendy Cooper will be reading extracts from her new novel The Vegetarian Vampire: The Lost Fangs.
The summer challenge, run by the Reading Agency, is a national campaign aimed at encouraging children to read and use libraries through the long school holidays.
Stourport library manager Maureen Hobbs said: "The Creepy House challenge has been an extremely popular theme this year.
“I'm delighted for Jamie who has won a signed book and for all the other children who have taken part in the challenge at Stourport Library this year. It's been great fun.
"The Creepy House Acrostic poem competition is still open too, so remember to bring your entries in for a chance to win a prize."
