Online publisher encourages region to get reading with huge book giveaway for Euro 2020 final
9th July 2021
Twinkl Educational Publishing has launched a scheme ahead of the Euro 2020 final to encourage children in the UK to get hooked on reading, as well as the football.
The publisher is asking the public to predict the result of the final match on Sunday in order to win a free printed children's book.
Penned by expert writers and current and former teachers at Twinkl, two books are available to win, depending on the prediction made.
If England win, those who backed the home team will get to celebrate with Part of the Party - a heart-warming story about inclusivity and diversity.
If Italy win the final on Sunday, whilst the country faces the reality of defeat, those who predicted correctly will receive Back to Earth with a Bump - a rhyming space adventure story that’s great for bedtime. Both books are suitable for children aged 3-7 years old. The England team’s performances, which have seen them reach the final of the Euro’s for the first time since 1966, have helped inspire and unite the entire nation. Twinkl is hoping that the enthusiasm sweeping the country will also inspire people to get a free book and kick-start some reading time with their children.
Jonathan Seaton, Co-founder and CEO at Twinkl Educational Publishing, said, “We are always looking for ways to encourage and celebrate reading at Twinkl - it’s at the core of the UK curricula and well documented that great reading skills help children to go far. “This is our way of supporting and celebrating the amazing achievements of the England football team while helping children across the UK love reading as much as we do. I would encourage anyone and everyone to get involved, make a prediction that hopefully sees them
receive a book and get stuck into reading!”
