According to Reading is Fundamental (RIF), Nearly two-thirds of low-income families in the U.S. DO NOT own books. That is just plain wrong. But, we can help fix it.
I am celebrating the power of the picture book by starting an initiative called, Picture Book Pass it On (#PBPiO)
I hope you will join me by accepting 3 calls to action:
#1 Pledge to donate a new or gently used picture book/s to a children’s charity in your area.
#2 Post about your pledge. Share it on your blog and on social media. Please include our badge and #PBPiO
#3 Pass it on. When you post about your pledge, challenge one or more friends to join your #PBPiO giving chain. Encourage them to take the pledge and keep passing it on…
UPDATE: We now have children’s authors in the US, the UK, and Australia passing on autographed copies of their own books to kids in need. How cool is that?!
We are donating a copy of one of our favorite picture books to Joshua Christian Academy.
