We invite those of you with blogs to share stories of how you celebrate
International Book Giving Day via our International Book Giving Day blog
International Book Giving Day is a volunteer initiative aimed at
increasing children’s access to and enthusiasm for books. We are
inviting people to celebrate International Book Giving Day on February
14 by 1. giving a book to a friend or family member, 2. leaving a book
in a waiting room for children to read, or 3. donating a gently used
book to a local library, hospital, shelter, or organization that
distributes used books to children in need.
One of the things that makes International Book Giving Day special is
connecting with others from around the world who are giving books to
kids. This blog hop offers one way for people from around the world to
connect and share stories of how they celebrated International Book
1. Write a post describing how you celebrated International Book
Giving Day. A short and sweet post (e.g. a photo of you or your child
leaving a book in a waiting room) is welcome!
2. On February 21 or shortly after, add a link to your post at any of our host blogs. Asia in the Heart, World on the Mind is one of the host blogs, so you can add your link right here!

International Book Giving Day will be available at each of the host blogs.
The blog hop will remain live until March 21.
