My daughter was ready to start planning and making her Valentines for school as soon as New Year’s was over. She loves a holiday!
Today I found a great idea at Kids Heart Authors website a site I found through Twitter.
“Bookstores, authors, and illustrators are teaming up to make V-Day 2009 an unforgettable one for New England families.
Bundle up your brood and head to your community bookstore on Saturday, February 14th, where local authors and illustrators will gather from 10 to 12 a.m. to sign books for kids and teens.
Bookstores will provide bunches of books, and authors and illustrators will personalize them and answer any and all questions about writing and drawing.
Don’t miss this chance to shower your pint-sized (or teen-sized) valentine with literary love. Browse by state to find the perfect destination for you and your beloved child or teen this Valentine’s Day, and check the listings in the sidebar to find websites for confirmed authors, illustrators, and booksellers.”
Well this certainly sounds like an idea that needs to spread outside of New England! I want the chance to shower by brood with books and love on Valentine’s Day. Spread the Word!
