The Great Book Swap

Posted on Thursday, 5th September, 2013
The Great Book Swap is a fundraising event for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. Kids donate unwanted books from home then buy another book for $2.

This really encourages us to sacrifice something in order to gain something else. It’s also a great opportunity to discuss some of the difficulties many indigenous children live with; growing up without books and not being able to read and write.

Of course is it’s always a good time to talk with your kids about the great  joys of reading and of sharing favourite authors, genres and styles.
