Frankston City Mayor Kris Bolam reads with three-year-old Spencer.

Frankston City Libraries invites children aged 0-5 and their families to get involved in this year’s Mayor’s Reading Challenge. In its 11th year, the challenge supports early literacy development by encouraging parents and carers to read with their children in a fun and rewarding way.

“Australian research has found that children who are read to six or seven times a week have a literacy level almost a year ahead of children who are not read to at home, and tend to learn more when they start school,” said Frankston City Mayor Kris Bolam. “We encourage parents to make reading interesting by not only sharing children’s books but materials you enjoy. You could read snippets of your favourite magazine or newspaper out loud, point out road signs or sing nursery rhymes.”

Everyone who completes the challenge of 60 books receives a free book and goes into the draw to win one of the major prizes. The challenge runs throughout August, and you can register via the Frankston City Libraries website, by dropping into the Frankston, Seaford or Carrum Downs libraries or by visiting the Council Customer Service Centre at Langwarrin. After a month of happy reading, children will collect a reading rewards pack, including a certificate signed by the Mayor and a new board book.

For more information and to register, go to or phone 9784 1020.
