One of the best ways to foster a sense of appreciation for literature in children is to give them books of their own. Unfortunately, this can get very expensive, and running out of shelf space can be a problem too. Why not organize a book exchange so that all of the kids at your child’s school can swap books with each other and end up with something new? Moreover, what better excuse could there be than Dr. Seuss Day? You don’t have to restrict yourself to Dr. Seuss’s books, but surely that giant of children’s literature would have approved of helping children broaden their reading horizons.
All you need to do is send children home with a form that they can fill out with the number of books they are bringing in. Once they return the form and the books, you will have a record of each child. When the kids come to the exchange, you can pull out the form and see right away how many books each person can take. It keeps everything nice and simple. Meanwhile, those who have no books to exchange can buy leftover books after the official swap is over. It’s a win-win situation!
