International Book Giving Day, part 2

Last Thursday we completed our little task for International Book Giving Day. After Milo’s appointment at asthma clinic we popped downstairs to the hospital cafe for a quick coffee before the walk home. While there we donated a selection of our picture books – all in good condition, some brand new that Milo has a duplicate of or has grown out of or just never got on with but another child easily might.

Totally forgot to get a photo of us donating the books so here’s one of Milo having his juice near the hospital shop.

The books will either be sold in the shop with money going towards the hospital or to be used on the wards. Either way, this was such a simple thing to do and something I’m sure we’ll do again in the future.

Amy at International Book Giving Day gave a really lovely mention of Book Aid International over on their blog, so please do head over to check that out.

And what about you? Did you get up to anything for International Book Giving Day?

      Thanks for adding us Amy – sorry I forgot to get a good picture! It’s such a great idea because it’s such a small, easy thing to do and books can make such a difference. I hope you’re pleased with the day and are planning to do it again next year :)
