Did you know that February 14th is International Book Giving Day?
A day dedicated to getting new, used and borrowed books in the hands of as many children as possible, you can use International Book Giving Day to have lots of fun; whether that’s giving your family a book, donating to a literacy charity, or organising a bookswap or picture book party, the day is a great way to celebrate books and foster a love of reading.
The incredibly talented Hungarian illustrator Mariann Maray has produced this year’s lovely poster.
Download this International Book Giving Day 2014 poster (pdf), print it… and put it EVERYWHERE! Libraries, classrooms, Facebook, Twitter, bookshops….
The poster is currently additionally available in Hindi, Portuguese, French and Spanish – head on over to the International Book Giving Day website to download these versions 🙂
