Inspire to Read.
Read to Inspire.

Who We Care

Research consistently demonstrates that becoming a lifelong reader is rooted in developing a profound love for reading at a very young age. While knowledge continuously evolves, literacy remains a lifelong companion for children, enabling them to learn, think, communicate, and inspire others.

 

At Reading Mile, our mission is to inspire children to read for pleasure and to empower them to inspire others through reading.

 

We envision a community where all children develop a love of reading and have unrestricted access to quality books, preparing them for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in their lives.

What We Do

ReadingMile® Storybook

ReadingMile® Storybook Series is thoughtfully crafted with two key objectives in mind:

To help parents discover the immense value of reading aloud to their children, which naturally inspires young minds to uncover the joys of reading and ultimately become lifelong readers;

To assist parents in nurturing positive, joyful, and resilient children.

To date, ReadingMile has developed five innovative storybook series, including the flagship collection "We Are Children Treasure Box." These high-quality picture books are crafted to introduce the "No, Go, Tell" safety rules, equipping children with essential skills to protect themselves from various forms of abuse.

Storytelling Sessions

At Reading Mile®, we bring stories to life through our vibrant Storytelling Sessions, held in collaboration with partner organizations such as NGOs. These sessions are available both virtually and in-person at accessible venues like shopping malls, and serve as a cornerstone of our community engagement. They consistently attract crowds of eager children and their parents. Our events are celebrated for their interactive, immersive experiences that not only entertain but also educate.


Recently, in partnership with Plan International HK and Sunday KISS, we launched the "We Are Children Treasure Box" series as an interactive reality. Over two weekends, our founder, Michelle Leung, hosted fourteen storytelling sessions, transforming reading into a dynamic activity that captivated young minds. These sessions are more than just reading aloud; they are meticulously designed to be engaging and informative, teaching children crucial safety rules like "No, Go, Tell" through story-driven games and activities. The enthusiastic participation and the joy on the children's faces underscore the impact and popularity of these sessions.

I really enjoy reading the ReadingMile Storybooks and the wonderful characters in the storybooks who I know personally in real life. ReadingMile Storybooks allows parents and kids to enjoy the fun of reading while exploring important themes such as safety and health tips, moral values, and people skills. In-book questions allow kids to make choices and talk about the outcomes. This series of storybooks is a perfect fit for anyone trying to teach kids reading and about the power of their choices; it is also perfect for character education from early years and allows parents and kids to enjoy quality, fun, and meaningful time together! I highly recommend the ReadingMile Storybooks to every parent, teacher, and principal!
