Sidmouth Booktracker gains gold award

Lydia reads her way through 100 titles to gain Booktracker award

MEET Lydia Boyd from Winslade Road, Sidmouth, who has gained a gold Booktrack award from Sidmouth Library for reading her way through 100 titles.

Lydia, seven, is a Year 3 pupil at Tipton St John Primary School.

Mum Hannah told the Sidmouth Herald: “Lydia is really pleased and has been working towards this for a year-and-a- half.

“She has been proudly wearing her badge everywhere. She’s always liked reading a variety of books.”

Librarian Meriel Santer listens to youngsters’ reviews of the books they read towards Booktrack, which is a scheme to encourage children to read and enjoy books from an early age.
