So what exactly is International Book Giving Day?
International Book Giving Day’s focus is on encouraging people worldwide to give a book to a child on February 14th. The aim being that we get books into the hands of many children as possible. It is a 100% volunteer initiative aimed at increasing children’s access to books and to encourage their enthusiasm with reading.
