NT Summer Reading Challenge 2020 – Read a Rainbow
How do I enter?
Read 5 books over the summer holiday. Keep a list of the titles and when finished rate them out of five. For your favourite of the five you can either;
Design a new front cover – think about why you liked the book, what the cover will say to other readers,
Write a new back cover for the book – you should include a blurb, review and images if you wish.
Submit your entry via email to email@example.com or hand in in by the end of September.
