The Mr. Men Bookmobile will be traveling across the UK this summer giving away 10,000 books to encourage more reading opportunities for children of all backgrounds.
The five-day tour has been organized with our friends over at Haliborange giving away free books and vitamins. The event aims to support children’s reading and cognitive development and help parents and children spend more time reading over the summer holidays. With help from celebrity Rochelle Humes at the event in London, we will be inviting families and children to come along and pick up their free Mr. Men book and vitamin samples throughout the five-day tour. There will also be the chance to meet a 3D life-size Mr. Strong, who can be brought to life using AR technology.
