Lakeland Childrens Books

Our Story

Lakeland Childrens Books is a family-run wholesale business, specialising in the distribution of children's books across the North of England and Southern Scotland. We have continuously grown since being established in 1996, bringing high quality products to our customers across the region.

Based in Millom, Cumbria, we distribute from Lancashire in the south to Dumfries & Galloway in the north and coast to coast from Blackpool to Tyneside and Teesside.

We have brought and continue to bring a guaranteed profit to hundreds of local businesses within our catchment and have brought the joys and benefits of reading to countless children.

What We Do

Lakeland Childrens Books corresponds with the nation's leading publishers of children's literature. We bring the latest and greatest titles from independent and recognised children's publishers to our customers. Titles are carefully selected both in terms of quality and the range of types sold. Publishers such as Brown Watson, Templar, Priddy, Five Mile Press, Miles Kelly, Usborne and Alligator regularly communicate with us to ensure that our stock is balanced both with recognisable brands, classic educational resources and puzzles.

Our board books and activity packs will appeal to the youngest of readers, whilst the non-fictional resource books are suitable for those reaching their final years in primary school.

What We Can Do For You?

Children will always need exposure to as many books as they can be encouraged to read in the critical pre-school and early school years. Whilst the internet and television can bring interactive entertainment, they cannot solely educate and expand the imagination of children.

We are constantly seeking to expand our distribution model in exciting new ways. We want to bring our specially-picked selection of books to your children, providing wider access to high-quality children's literature. Our common interest is to give children the best possible resources to help them get the best start to their lives. As a regionally-recognised book distributor of over seventeen years, Lakeland Childrens Books has become a trusted resource.

The collections we can sell to you are fairly priced, frequently significantly undercutting the RRP, sometimes as high as by 50%.
