International Book Giving Day

Almost as soon as National Libraries Day is over we have International Book Giving Day. This is a volunteer initiative aimed at increasing children’s access to and enthusiasm for books. Do you know that:
  • Most children in developing countries do not own books.
  • In the United Kingdom, one-third of children do not own books.
  • In the United States, two-thirds of children living in poverty do not own books.
Go to the link above to read more about how you can help, find out what other people are doing, download bookplates for your gift and much more. Afterwards, if you have a blog, you can write up what you did and add it to the blog hop. Last year, I sold my old banger! See if you can top that.
