Five things you can do today to celebrate!

  • Give a book to a child as a Valentine’s Day present.
  • Borrow a book from the library, and share it with a child.
  • Rifle through your bookshelves for children’s books that could use a better home, and donate them to a good cause within the next week. Consider donating your books to your local library, second hand store, children’s hospital, shelter, after-school program etc.
  • Identify a waiting room with few to no good children’s books, and commit to leaving a book in that waiting room within the next week.
