Don’t you just love a good book? I mean, really truly, it is one of the great pleasures of life, and at any age. I have to say that I love children’s books just as much, well actually, probably more than big people books. There is just something so magical about children’s books . . . the words, the colors, the imagination, the drawings and even the smell.
Well, it’s Milk + Bookies Day. And I’m really excited to be participating in this blog event along the likes of Melisa from The Lil Bee, Joanna from A Cup of Jo, Abbey of Abbey Goes Design Scouting and many more.
What is Milk + Bookies you ask [besides a really cute + clever name]? It’s a pretty great organization that helps provide books to children that don’t have access to them. The concept is, you host a book party, book club . . . any kind of gathering and everyone purchases a favorite book, writes a perosnal inscription, and then recieves an “I donated” sticker. And thus, many children are given books they would otherswise not have oppurtunity to receive. You can of course also simply make a donation.
I know giving a favorite book is one of my favorite presents to give. You too?
What was your favorite children’s book? Do you have any current favorites that you are reading to your littles?
As an adult one of my favorite children’s authors is Lauren Child.
Happy Monday, Lovelies. I hope you feel inspired to give a book and read a book!
