As you know, we are keeping with an inclusive challenge again this year with the three options, Easy, Hard, and Super Reader. This year’s monthly category will be, “Read the Rainbow”, a different colour will be picked each month, and you can choose to either read a book with that coloured cover or with the colour in the title. There will also be an alphabetical challenge, once again by author’s name.
