  1. No images on my blog, hence the, um, very artistic image above, but the link to my poem to mark International Book Giving Day is here
    I also marked the day by donating to Book Aid International and setting aside some books to give to the daughter of the woman who used to sell the Big Issue from here, although I'm not sure when I'll next see her.

    1. We appreciate the poem you wrote for International Book Giving Day! Thank you so much!

  2. Wasn't able to link up a blog post, but I am so glad I found out about International Book Giving Day this year. I love buying books to give to children for their birthdays, and we did some of that in February. Gave three Elephant & Piggie Books by Mo Willems. Went to a used bookstore last week with my 7-year-old and picked out a few treasures for her and her little sister, too. I'm already thinking of grander plans for next year!

  3. Thanks for sharing what you did to celebrate International Book Giving Day, Kerry! We plan to give you and others advanced notice next year and are not opposed to you starting to plan now. (:
