LTPB Exchange


Let's Talk Picture Books Exchange (#LTPBExchange) is a quarterly series of one-on-one picture book swaps on Instagram. It offers participants the opportunity to join a global picture book community and share children's books from around the world. So far we've had over 350 different people from 30 unique countries swap picture books, and we'd love to have you join us. Here's how to participate:
  1. Follow @LTPBExchange and look for an announcement that the new exchange is open (this is usually in January, April, July, and October).
  2. You will be able to indicate on the form if you want an international partner. Nervous about shipping to another country? I recommend using Book Depository, which ships to almost every country worldwide free of charge.
  3. I will randomly pair you up with a partner and DM you both so you can exchange physical mailing addresses and discuss book likes and loves.
  4. Choose a book(s) under $15 and published within the last two years (to keep things fresh!), and mail it by the specified date.
  5. Tag your partner and the book with #LTPBExchange when you post about it so we can share it on the Instagram account!
That's it! I hope you'll join us in the largest children's book exchange on Instagram. Here is a list of all the countries that have participated so far:
