I received this information from Reading is Fundamental (RIF) through Facebook. RIF’s mission is to motivate all children to become active readers. They want all children to have access to books and enjoy reading. RIF delivers free books to children who may not have many opportunities.
Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day is December 3rd, which is tomorrow. Honestly, it doesn’t matter when you go just as long as you go soon with your son, daughter, brother, sister, niece, nephew, friend, grandchild, and anyone else who needs a great book to read. I’m also a big fan of the library, so help the child get a library card, visit story hour, and explore new worlds between the book shelves.
There’s an interactive map on their website with bookstores across 35 states, two Canadian provinces, England, and even Australia, that participate in Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day. But it doesn’t matter where you go, just encourage a visit to any bookstore.
