Make reading their superpower this summer
Reading is one of the greatest gifts you’ll ever give your child. It’s a true superpower that will help them in the real world, every day.
The Week Junior was created to get kids to love reading, a skill that fires your child’s imagination, increases their vocabulary, and boosts their wellbeing. It encourages 8-14s to explore what's happening around the world - fuelling their natural curiosity and sparking their own opinions.
It's a fun initiative that encourages them to get lost in some great books – and review them. So whether they’re an enthusiastic reader or just getting started, there’s no better time to boost your child’s powers – for life. You'll receive 6 free weeks of magazine for free plus our Passport to a Summer of Reading download, to help them get started with their summer reading journey.

The Week Junior magazine’s Summer of Reading challenge aims to inspire children to fall in love with reading over the course of the school holiday. We’re challenging every child to read, rate and review three books, for a chance to win a fantastic bundle of books PLUS book tokens!
We've put together a brilliant list of 50 books for readers of all abilities, so whether they’re an enthusiastic reader or just getting started, there’s no better time to boost your child’s powers – for life.

I wish The Week Junior had been around when I was a kid - I’d have known so much more about the world in which I was growing up.
My granddaughter Rosamund dashes in from school on a Friday afternoon, grabs her latest copy of The Week Junior & disappears for the next 3 hours. She loves this magazine!
The Week Junior is brilliant! All the news, without the boring bits. Or at least with the boring bits made not boring.
