Time for a Book Swap Party!

The end of the summer is the perfect time to invite your children’s friends over for a Book Swap Party. Ask kids to bring all the books they read over the summer and have your child gather up all of the books she read over the last few weeks. Have everyone put their books on a table — then have kids pick out new ones to read for the new school year.
