Michelle has challenged me to 3 CALLS TO ACTION that I will happily and gladly answer! And here’s how:
#1 Post a “shout-out” to celebrate your favorite picture book. It can be anything from posting a selfie of you and your fave picture book kickin’ it, to tweeting a line from one of your favorite characters or scenes, or post a picture or video of you reading a favorite picture book with a child, pet, or loved one. Or blog about a favorite picture book memory from your childhood.
#2 Pledge to donate a copy of your favorite picture book to a local children’s charity or cause (battered women’s shelter, prison waiting room where children wait to visit an incarcerated parent, a struggling school, etc.)
#3 Pass it on. Help spread the word about Picture Book Pass it On (#PBPiO). Encourage others to accept the 3 calls to action, and pass it on…
And here’s my answer:
#1 One of my favorite picture books is Room on the Broom and I blogged about the picture book here. Later today, I will tweet the following line from the book: “How the cat purred and how the witch grinned, As they sat on their broomstick and flew through the wind.” #PBPiO
#2 A copy of Room on the Broom will be donated to Piccolo’s Books. This is a local bookstore of mine and truly fantastic; they offer only used books. Every book in the store is $1–to help families buy books on a budget. They constantly donate children’s books to assure education is free and recently donated over 200,000 children’s books to builds libraries, help schools and orphanages in Jamaica, Ghana and Ethopia.
#3 It’s on! I will Pass On the 3 Calls to Action –and I hope she’ll accept! pretty please — to @sylvafae from Sylvanian Ramblings.
Thank you, Michelle, for your 3 Calls to Action–this was FUN! #PBPiO
Happy Picture Book Month, everyone!
