8 Celebrities That Shared a Shelfie to Celebrate the Magic of Storytelling

The art of taking selfies has taken on a whole new meaning. Thanks to the Magic of Storytelling campaign, you can help inspire imagination and a lifelong love of reading—and it’s as easy as snapping a shelfie!

If you don’t know already, a shelfie is essentially a photo of yourself with a book. From now until March 31, 2018, Disney will give one book to First Book for every shelfie posted on Twitter or Instagram—donating up to one million books total. All you have to do is pick a book, snap a shelfie, and hashtag #MagicOfStorytelling—that’s it!

A number of celebrities joined in on the cause, posting their own fun shelfies:

Before you start choosing a filter for your shelfie, check out all the other ways you can unlock a donation:

First Book works with schools, early childhood programs, after-school initiatives, clinics, shelters, libraries, and other programs serving children in need. To put things in perspective, this means 30,000 classrooms and programs will receive up to one million books during the campaign!
