It’s almost here!

International Book Giving Day is the same day as Valentines Day, Feb 14! 

What does this mean?

Spreading the love of books to children everywhere!

It’s such a wonderful idea I decided to jump onboard and join in the giveaways this year.

I’m trying a lot of new things this year. I started my email list, (finally), now have to start writing my first newsletter. So exciting. 🙂

I even joined the scary world of the twittersphere. (Wish me luck on that one, I’m a bit nervous about that).

One thing I am really excited about though is joining my author friends from all over the world to bring to you the chance to win free copies of all our gorgeous children’s books. This is your chance to get books into the hands of children you love and read aloud with them some fabulous new stories. Sharing the love of books and reading on Valentines Day, has to be a great idea, don’t you agree?

International Book Giving Day is a day devoted to instilling a lifelong love of reading in children and providing access to books for children in need. It falls each year on Valentines Day and what better way to say I love you than by giving your loved ones something they can enjoy reading over and over again. What better way to tell our children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews we love them than with the gift of a book!

Books are a small gift that can last a lifetime and make a huge impact! You could inspire a future author, a journalist, a scientist, the possibilities are endless. Never underestimate the power of giving a book, you never know where the imagination and creativity may lead.

So, now you know what Book Giving Day is all about and you love the idea too! What do you do next?

  • You can take a loved one to the library and share a book with them.
  • Read aloud at home with a special someone, maybe even a neighbour’s child
  • Donate a much loved old children’s book to a family, charity or hospital in need.
  • Visit a bookstore and buy a book for someone you love.
  • or you can join our giveaway.

I am so pleased and excited to be sharing in my first giveaway with some of my special author friends in this Book Giveaway Extravaganza! In total there will be 14 signed copies of our books as well as ebooks all ready to giveaway with love especially to you. The Giveaway starts Wednesday 1st February and runs through to 15th February 2017.

Marianne Dubuc – creator of the 2017’s official poster – has also created these beautiful bookmarks. Print one out and add to your book when you give it to someone you love. Don’t forget to write a few special words of love in the inside front cover. The receiver will love and treasure it.
