Reading Challenge: A Book that Made You Feel Comforted or Hopeful

Sometimes the world feels dark and cold, and we need stories like bowls of hot soup on a bitter day. Books can fill us with warmth, inspire us, or make us laugh and forget about our worries. It doesn't matter what kind of book you pick for this Reading Challenge category. A fictional story, a true story, a joke book. As long as it lifts your spirits, that's what matters!

Finished the challenge? Congrats! Remember to let a grown-up know if you want to enter the prize draw. You need to have a library card and to fill out this form by January 2, 2022.
