What is Books on the Go?

– Books on the Go is a summer reading challenge held annually by Class Acts. Participants are asked to read minimally one book in English in order to register in the challenge.

– Books on the Go is open to young readers living in Prague and its surrounding areas, but children do not have to be in Prague over the summer to participate.  Both English speakers and English learners are encouraged to participate! Readers aged 16 or younger who read at least one book in English this summer may register to enter Books on the Go, and those reading at least three books in English will be entered in a raffle for prizes, with the Books on the Go party for all registered readers on September 2nd 2016.

2016 Books on the Go will have a Mr. Lemoncello’s Library theme, and special activities and challenges will take place throughout the summer, based on Chris Grabenstein’s Mr. Lemoncello’s Library series.  There will even be a special prize category at the party.

How it works:

  • Register your child or children online here. You’ll receive a reading record to download and print out.
  • As your child reads books in English, enter them into the reading record.
  • When your child has read 10 books, sign the reading record and return it to Class Acts (you can scan and send it to classacts@email.cz.
  • When Class Acts receives the completed reading record, your child will receive a certificate, and your child’s name will be entered in a raffle for prizes.  You will also receive information about the Books on the Go party on September 2nd for all Books on the Go readers.
