Taking the summer holiday reading challenge with Books2Door

Posted on
July 1, 2021

Travel may be restricted to the UK this summer and with the current weather a little unsettled, laying on a warm, sunny beach with a good book might be a challenge, but you can still whisk yourself away and immerse yourself in a world of fiction.

Continuing reading throughout the holiday’s is also great for the kids, as it’s the perfect way for your child to pursue his/her individual interests and at the same time maintain and strengthen important reading skills such as vocabulary and comprehension.

We were invited to review and I let the kids choose the books they wanted for their summer reading challenge. select books that they know children love, from treasured classics to the latest must-have series and all at affordable prices.

Sebastian loves everything Star Wars at the moment and opted for Star Wars Jedi Academy, which is styled on comic-book fiction like Captain Underpants.


Eliza choose the Ben Miller series of books as she has been wanting to read his ‘The day I fell into a Fairytale‘ for some time.


Isaac and I listen to Radio One on the journey to and from school and he loves Greg James, so he chose the Kid Normal series of books, about an unlikely superhero.


I find that owning our own books is a great way to get the kids to read off their own back and they all enjoy them so much that they swap the books with each other.

    We’re a big reading family so we’ll hopefully all be doing a lot this summer!

    Book2Door sound great. I need to try to encourage my older two to read more. The summer reading challenge sounds like a great idea.

Are we nearly there yet? is a new online blog run by me, Kara Guppy, and is named as such thanks to my daughter Eliza who always asks that very question when we are less than 5 minutes up the road heading off on our adventures. You may know me from my other family blog
