This book exchange is a fun way to promote reading during the holiday season! Send home the directions a few weeks in advance and include the date of the book exchange. On the day of the exchange, have students sit a circle and place the wrapped books in the center. Have each student draw a number. Students will all have a chance to choose a “new” book in number order. After everyone has a chance to choose a wrapped book, students can open their book and enjoy some reading time.
