Happy February!

February is such a busy month for a variety of reasons. We have Valentines Day, International Book Giving Day, Lincoln’s birthday, and also President’s day.

International Book Giving Day


But the event we are most excited about is one we created!

With the winter doldrums kicking in and families getting restless from being trapped indoors, we thought this would be a perfect time to create a Family Book Festival. And what better way to create a list of books to include in our  Family Book Festival is to ask fellow writers, authors, and bloggers for their favorite childhood book favorites along with some matching activities.

So throughout the month of February, we will be enlisting the help, thoughts, and opinions from our participants on what books they remember the most from childhood, and what books are family favorites now.  My thought is that this compilation of books, favorite reads, and activities will provide not only a new reading list for the winter, but a sweet walk down memory lane for parents that will last the whole month of February.

In 2013, Family Book Festival was a huge success and 2014 will be just as fun and info filled as well. Here’s a look back at some of the amazing book picks and activities from our treasured FBF participants.
