Free Books Posted for Online Reading from We Give Books

     Hi book lovers! Here's a neat link that you could consider including on your Edline page or bookmark in your class for students to use on the computers. It's a source for free access to a selection on books in an electronic online version from We Give Books. This organization is a Pearson Learning Initiative, and it is also working in collaboration with Read for the Record. 

     You will find some modern fiction classics such as Jan Brett's The Mitten, as well as books from Rosemary Wells and favorite picture book characters Skippyjon Jones, Miss Rumphius, Llama Llama, and Ladybug Girl. There's also a selection of nonfiction with of fantastic photos from DK (Dorling Kindersley) Publishing Company. We Give Books has a mission to get literature to children for free, whether in a digital online format or by donating books to children in need across the country. Once you read a book online, the foundation donates a real book to a child through one of the numerous initiatives it is associated with around the world. Wow! It's a win-win situation! :)
