November is Picture Book Month, and I am celebrating the power of the picture book by participating in an initiative called, Picture Book Pass it On (#PBPiO)
I hope you will join me by accepting the following three easy yet powerful calls to action:
#1 Post a “shout-out” to celebrate your favorite picture book on your favorite social platform. 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 posingt 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 three calls to action, and pass it on…
People are Passing it On in lots of different ways and in lots of different places, won’t you join in the fun? No matter how you choose to share your story, whether you follow PBPiO on Facebook , or blog, tweet or post your pledge to donate picture books to kids on your favorite social media sites, be sure to use #PBPiO so we can all follow how books are reaching kids all over the globe.
Oh, and remember to Pass it On!
