For the LOVE of BOOKS - Celebrating Reading and Creativity during National Reading Month

We here at Pieces by Polly LOVE books.  We have literally hundreds of children's books in the house, and you just never know when books or a book-inspired project is going to pop up on the blog.

March starts off with Dr. Seuss's birthday on March 2nd, which has become Read Across America Day (celebrated March 3rd this year so it falls on a school-day), and the whole month of March is National Reading Month.

A couple years ago I sponsored a month long Read-Along of book-themed posts from lots of different bloggers.
It was a lot of fun to host and there are some great projects on my Children's Book Page.

I thought it would be fun celebrate reading again, so this year I'll be hosting For the LOVE of BOOKS.

In some ways it will be similar to the Read-Along, and in other ways completely different.

Here's what you can look forward to:

  • Children's Book Inspired Projects...sewing projects, quilts, clothes, and more
  • Round-Ups of some of our family's favorite posts
  • Link-Up to share your own Reading Themed Posts
  • Usborne Book Drive to Benefit Seattle Children's Hospital
  • Several Fun Giveaways
  • Re-posting of my Favorite Book Posts from the Past
  • LOTS of inspiration
I'll also be looking for a few guest posts to fill in the days that I won't be posting, so if you're interested send me an email, and I'll send you some info about what it requires.

Grab a button to let everyone know about the fun.  Then come back Monday at noon for your first dose of book lovin'!

For the LOVE of BOOKS
