Essex-based Miles Kelly Publishing is giving away 600 books over the summer holidays as part of a campaign to keep children reading over the break.
The company, which publishes non-fiction, fairy tale and novelty books, will give away 100 books every week for six weeks as part of its #GiveABook campaign. To win a book, an adult must nominate a child and say what book they would like them to receive via the campaign website.
Amanda Askew, marketing director at Miles Kelly, said the publisher wants to “spread the gift of reading”.
She said: “Society is being constantly reminded how important it is to encourage children to read, and we know that for some households it is not always an easy task. With this in mind, we wanted to help the cause in any way we can, and saw an opportunity to keep kids reading over the school summer holidays.”
