PRESS RELEASE 02.06.2024

Launch of the Mr Monks Childrens Holiday Diary

We are thrilled to announce the launch of the ‘Mr Monks Children’s Holiday Diary,’ a series of delightful and engaging journals based around Mr Monks, a furry adventurer (our Cockapoo) who lives in Derbyshire but loves going on his holibobs all over the UK exploring beautiful landscapes, countryside and exciting places. They are designed to capture the magical moments of children’s holidays across the diverse regions of the United Kingdom. These innovative diaries encourage children to document their adventures, fostering creativity, literacy, and a love for travel. Each ‘Mr Monks Children’s Holiday Diary’ is tailored to celebrate the unique characteristics and attractions of different regions within the UK. From historic landmarks to breathtaking landscapes, scenic coastlines and vibrant cities, each diary section is filled with fun facts, activities, and spaces for children to write and draw their holiday experiences.

Key Features:

Region-Specific Content: Each diary is dedicated to a different UK region, featuring local attractions and interesting trivia.

Interactive Activities: Pages include puzzles, games, and prompts to inspire children to think creatively and engage with their surroundings.

Memory Keepsake: A beautiful way for children to preserve their holiday memories, with spaces for photos, ticket stubs, and personal reflections.

Quote: Liz Handley creator of Mr Monks Holiday Diaries, says “Mr Monks Holiday Diary is more than just a journal; it’s an educational tool that helps children appreciate the richness of the UK’s heritage while honing their writing and observation skills. We believe it will make family holidays even more memorable. The holiday diary idea stems from a noble intention to encourage children to step away from technology and engage in more traditional family activities that foster interaction and bonding among family members. In today’s digital age, where smartphones and tablets often dominate our attention, the holiday diary serves as a creative tool to bring families together and create lasting memories.”

Availability: The ‘Mr Monks Holiday Diary’ is currently available for 4 regions - The Lake District, Peak District and Derbyshire, Yorkshire and Cornwall with other regions to follow.

About Mr Monks Holiday Diaries: Based on our own childhood holiday diaries and our childrens holiday diaries the journey has been remarkably quick from original concept in late March this year to having them in retailers by the end of April.
