Yesterday was Family Literacy Day in Canada, and my daughter’s school encouraged all the kids to bring to books they wanted to trade-in. I loved it! My daughter brought in one book yesterday and decided afterwards that she wanted to trade more. So today, she took in 3 more books. I can hardly wait to see what her new books will be.
It’s great to see school and kids participate in book exchanges – what a better way to endorse reading, getting some new (gently used) books that your kid wants, and being eco-friendly. Book exchanges put into play REDUCE, the amount of books you buy from a store, and REUSE, passing it along for the next reader.
