International Book Giving Day

Today is International Book Giving Day!

Today is International Book Giving Day! The aim? To get books into the hands of as many children as possible.

Today I will be giving away a diversity book bundle on my Instagram @PragmaticMom. Follow me and tag two people to win my giveaway!

14th February is about sharing the love of books! #bookgivingday

International Book Giving Day is a 100% volunteer initiative aimed at increasing children’s access to and enthusiasm for books because:

  • 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.

Give a Book for International Book Giving Day

Did you know that today is both Valentine’s Day AND International Book Giving Day? It’s easy to celebrate both since both holidays are about giving! And if you really want to go crazy, February is both Heart Smart Month AND Black History Month. There’s a lot to celebrate in such a short month!

International Book Giving Day Coming Up!

International Book Giving Day is also Valentine’s Day

I joined some great children’s book Google Plus Communities recently and I got the heads up about International Book Giving Day which, incidentally, falls on Valentine’s Day. I wanted to get the word out since I know I will need a few weeks to organize my children’s books to find a pile to donate.

Delightful Children’s Books was the first blogger to alert me. She has a wonderful children’s book blog that I read religiously. She says:
