Kids' Club Reviews
Summer Reading Challenge Leader Board: With less than 10 days of the Summer Reading Challenge to go, you will have to hurry-hurry to get as many books read and reviewed before the Challenge ends on January 31st. Remember each book you read and review will get you an entry into the main prize draw. So the more reviews, the more entries. We have crunched some numbers and done some maths, and have found out who the top 10 reviewers are so far...
