February 14 is many things, all of which I love. Among them is International Book Giving Day, celebrated around the world since 2012. It's easy to celebrate: just give a book, leave a book, or donate a book. Better yet, do all three! This year, we chose a handful of books for each of the kids' teachers, for them to keep in their classrooms or give away to kids who might not have many books at home--but we'll have to wait til Tuesday to deliver them, thanks to the snowstorm ("Snochi") that closed school today.
This year's IBGD crocodile poster was designed by Hungarian illustrator Mariann Maray, and in the spirit of this worldwide book lovers' holiday it's available in lots of different languages. ¡Celebre el día internacional de la donación de libros!
