International Book Giving Day

By sophiebk 12 Feb 2019

Did you know that this Thursday 14th February is a very special day?

That's right ... It's International Book Giving Day!



 Whether it's to a friend or relative, there's no greater gift to give than a book!



While you can gift your books to anyone, the #bookgiving day campaign focuses specifically on giving books to children.



“1 in 8 disadvantaged children in the UK don’t own a single book” [National Literacy Trust, Dec 2017] and so 14th February is about getting books into the hands of as many children as possible.



So, take those books you've been meaning to clear out to the local charity shop or make a donation to one of the many charities working to increase literacy in children.



Make sure you tag us in any social media snaps you share of your good deed.
