International Book Giving Day is coming up on February 14th. I think it is wonderful that this day coincides with Valentine's Day. What better way to share love than to share a book and the love of reading? This day is designed to promote childhood literacy and to put the gift of a book into the hands of children around the world. The website is lovely: just click here. You can download a Gus Gordon designed bookplate to print, or an Anna Walker designed bookmark.
Of course, if you are shopping for children's books, I hope you'll visit Birdhouse Books. I have a lovely collection of books for children -- mostly vintage but some new editions as well. Birdhouse Books on eBay: click here for nostalgic children's books.
