Thanks to Learning Parade for the heads up about a great upcoming postcard swap. Playing By the Book is creating an opportunity for you to send and receive 5 postcards from overseas (or at the very least a different corner of our country) with a children's book recommendation. You just submit your children's names and ages along with a favorite children's book recommendation and you are paired up with similar aged children from around the world and their favorite book (just click on the link above for all the details).
I have a collection of children's books, so this is right up my alley. It would also be fun to use the postcards for an altered art project like the gorgeous work in the Griffin and Sabine series by Nick Bantock. (shown here) I think my 9 year old daughter will have fun waiting for our 5 postcards to arrive. (Deadline for sign-up is May 17)
