Children's Book Week Giveaway Hop (INTL ends 3/19)




Children's Book Week Giveaway Hop is hosted by Alyson from Kid Lit Frenzy with Kathy from I Am A Reader, Not A Writer, and Ella from Mymcbooks




What is Children's Book Week? 

Established in 1919, Children’s Book Week is the longest-running literacy initiative in the country. Each year, books for young people and the joy of reading are feted for a full week with author and illustrator appearances, storytelling, parties, and other book-related events at schools, libraries, bookstores, museums, and homes from coast to coast!


The theme for this year's Children's Book Week is "books can take you anywhere". I remember my grandpa buying me the first non-picture books that really jump-started my imagination: Robinson Crusoe,  Treasure Island, Swiss Family Robinson (hey, what was with the stranded on desert island motif? I may never know), Heidi, Little Women. I lived in a pretty modern but still third-world city on an island, and none of these books had anything to do with that. It's what I loved so much about them! They transported me to times and places I had never been and might never be. I hope you take this week to show a young person in your life how books can take you to worlds far away as well as help you journey into your own soul.




For our giveaway, you can win a picture, juvenile fiction, middle grade, or young adult book of your choice worth up to $15 from bookdepository.com. Good luck, and make sure you hit up all the other awesome blog giveaways!
