We Give Books is a resource every parent should utilize. Just by joining (free) you have access to online books. Last night I personally read about a ficitional book about a boy who lived in Haiti during the recent earthquake and found a soccer ball of source of happiness not only to him, but to other children as well. My six year old daughter saw one with a gymnast so we looked at that and now she is ready to do gymnastics when she gets home.
This is a great website. All the books are FREE!!!!! Grab your kid and go read a book together. It's a win-win situation.
This is from their website:
We are dedicated to delivering award-winning books empowering you to read and share beautiful stories with children in your life. With age-appropriate content for young readers, our goal is to create memories that will last a lifetime.
Books are right at the heart of this program — books for reading and books for giving!
All of the books available for online reading are children's picture books appropriate for children through age ten. There is a mix of fiction and nonfiction, a range of authors, and an equal balance between read-alouds and books for independent readers. We'll be adding news books every month, together with special seasonal offerings.
The We Give Books team works upfront with each non-profit literacy partner to identify the kinds of children's books that best fit their program needs. Some of the same great books you can read online will be donated to our charity partners through your reading efforts. We also donate others they request specifically for the young people they serve.
