What day is February 14th? It’s International Book Giving Day, silly!
Actually, this was news to me and probably is to you, too, but hey, what better way to honor your little Valentine than to give them a book?
“International Book Giving Day is a day dedicated to getting new, used and borrowed books in the hands of as many children as possible.”
Roses are red, violets are blue, chocolate makes you hyper but this book is for you!
Three simple ways to celebrate International Book Giving Day:
3. Donate a Book. Wrap up a box of children’s books that your kids have outgrown and get them in the hands of children who could really use a book or two. Donate your books to your local second hand store, library, children’s hospital, or shelter. Alternatively, donate your books to an organization working internationally to get books in the hands of kids, such as Books for Africa.
