Holiday Book Exchange

bookexchange Have each child bring a new or gently used book to be exchanged at any holiday party.

Goals:

  • To promote the value of reading
  • To encourage sharing with others
  • To get kids excited about receiving and giving books

Before You Start: Have the child wrap the book and put their name on the tag.

Let's Get Started! Step 1. Write each child’s name on a piece of paper and then place all the names in a hat.

Step 2. When a child pulls a name from the hat have them present their book to that child.

Step 3. Encourage the children to tell their friend a little bit about the book they are giving them.

Furthermore: It is wonderful to see how excited the children are to receive and give a book that is special to them, in addition to being able to share in the "reading" with their friends.
