International Book Giving Day Bookmarks and Bookplates

International Book Giving Day (IBGD) is just two weeks today! Author / Illustrator Elys Dolan has not only designed this year’s fabulous poster but she has also designed the 2018 International Book Giving Day bookmarks and bookplates. The poster, bookmarks and bookplates are free to download from the Book Giving Day website.

As IBGD takes place during the school holiday we’re going to give bookmarks to friends and teachers next week to tell them about the day. We downloaded the PDFs from the website, printed them onto thin card then laminated them.

The bookplates are absolutely gorgeous too. They’re also easy to download and then print. I’ve just ordered a book to give to my daughter and will be sticking this cute little dragon inside 🙂

We’ve been sorting through our bookshelves to find books that we no longer read and are planning to make a ‘book cake‘ to give to our local library. They don’t have money in their budget for English books so it’s great to be able to support them with book donations.

Plans for our Book Giving Day giveaway are being finalised and we’d like to say a huge thank you to the authors and illustrators who are generously giving books away on Story Snug this year.

    Such a lovely idea. Think we might be away that day, so must remember to take some books #readwithme

      That’s the fantastic thing about Book Giving Day, you can celebrate it anywhere as long as you have books 🙂

      Book cakes are so easy to make and they look beautiful too. I’m going to tie it with orange ribbon to match this year’s poster 🙂

    I rarely need an excuse to give people books anyway but books AND an adorable dragon? Excellent!

    What a really lovely idea. I love the downloads – they are so colourful. I may have to do this for Grace – she really does love her reading x #MMBC

      It’s lovely to wrap a book for a child on Book Giving Day / Valentines’ Day, especially if they’re not expecting one!

    Hi Catherine, I think IBGD is a fantastic idea. Not only is it a fun way of encouraging children to read and enjoy books, but books can be expensive, so to gift a book could make a difference to one child’s life. I won’t be doing anything for IBGD, but we do always pass on old books to people that we think will love and cherish those books as much as we did.

    Thank you for linking up with the #MMBC.

      It’s lovely to pass on old books for other people to enjoy. I can’t understand people who just throw books away (unless they’re completely falling apart!).
