SpReAd The Love Children’s Book Challenge: First Post

The SpReAd The Love Children’s Book Challenge is up and running and our first post this year is from Suzy at SilverBlueLining who writes about one of her childhood favorites, The Little Witch by Otfried Preussler. Thanks so much, Suzy!

If you’re not certain what I’m talking about, the challenge is this: if there’s a book you loved as a child or a children’s book you’ve read and loved as an adult, we invite you to write a review of it and then donate a copy to a school, a library, a children’s hospital or Ronald McDonald house, or a child in your own life. Pretty simple, right? If you’d like to write a review but don’t have a blog of your own we can arrange a host for you here at SpReAd The Love, or at AncientArmitage, The Armitage Authors Network,  Me+Richard, or FunkyBlueDandelion.  If you’d prefer to just donate a book without a review just be sure to let us know so that we can count it toward our total.

 Like last year, this shindig is going down the first week of March. March 1st is Dr. Seuss’s birthday and kicks off Read Across America week here in the US. Our target dates for posts and donations are during this week but we’re flexible and posts a few days or so before or after are fine by us. This year we have an Anonymous Co-Conspirator willing to donate $1 for each book donated up to a maximum of $50 to one of the charities supported by Richard Armitage via JustGiving. Can we max that? I’ll bet we can. Just get in touch with us on the Contact form on the About tab and let us know what you’re planning to do. Thanks again to Suzy for today’s post and for those of you who’ve donated anonymously!
