Do you LOVE BOOKS?
Would your child like to get a book and activity in the mail?
Are you a blogger who likes activities that are fun AND educational?
Then this summer 2014 LOVE BOOK Exchange may be for you!
This is The Educators' Spin On It's 4th Love Book Exchange and it is going to be bigger and better than ever!!!!!
"I participated last year, and it was awesome! "
- Love Book Participant
So what is a LOVE BOOK exchange?
Participants select one book and one amazing, open ended activity to go along with it. YES, I wrote ONE. Just one, so make it a good one. They take a picture of the book and activity, write WHY they chose it and e-mail it to us (theeducatorsspinonit at gmail.com) Don't worry, we won't spoil the surprise and post about it too soon! Then they send the book and activity to the family they were matched with and wait! (Hopefully it's not too long!) Soon, a book and activity kit will arrive for them. They get to OPEN AND ENJOY!!!! Shortly afterwards, a blog post goes up on the participants own blog sharing about the cool book and activity they got. Kinda like an online thank you!

Spring 2012 Participants
As a past participant (as well as organizer) I think that choosing, sending, getting, AND reading the blog post of our recipients were all equally fun.
Past Participants Write:
"This whole book/activity swap has been a ton of fun! Thank you!"
"We had so much fun participating last summer!"
"We participated last year and my school-age daughter LOVED it! We had so much fun planning what to send, and receiving a great package in return. It's great to encourage summer reading."
"We loved participating last year and it is so much fun to share a love of books with other families around the world."
