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.
