Win fab kids’ books from Pan Macmillan for International Book Giving Day

February 10, 2015

It might be Valentine’s Day on the 14th, but did you know it’s also International Book Giving Day? Almost every day there’s a random “World” day (eg World Towel Day, World Chocolate Cake Day), but this one is a goodie – it could encourage reading, plus it’s a pretty awesome gift to give on the 14th if you’re not into giving your loved one heart-shaped chocolates or boxer shorts with hearts emblazoned on them. It’s also an opportunity to give the gift of reading to your child, and make it into an event.

To celebrate books and International Book Giving Day, Pan Macmillan is giving away a cool kids’ hamper with the following books (entry details at the bottom of the post)

We Love you, Hugless Douglas by David Melling

Princess Mirror-Belle and the Dragon Pox by Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks

Noisy Farm by Rod Campbell

Lift the Flap: First One Hundred Animals (Priddy Books)

9781447243083-01 Noisy Farm

    What a brilliant initiative! I’m one of those “boring” people who give books and/or book vouchers as gifts often. As a child, I LOVED receiving books as gifts – I liked nothing better than immersing myself in another world and the longer the story, the better. I try to encourage this in my own and other children, so books are a big part of our lives.
    I’d love to donate a few that my kids have outgrown – heading on over to the Book Giving Day site now – thanks!
