What if you could give hundreds of books to every young child you know this this holiday season? Would you do it? And would you believe me if I told you can do it and it doesn’t have to cost you a single penny?
I recently rediscovered an amazing little internet gem called WeGiveBooks.org
If you don’t know about this little beauty you’ll want to check it out. TODAY!
If you already know about it but haven’t visited it in a while, GO BACK! You’ll be amazed at all the new offerings.
And if you’re already a regular user, December would be the perfect time to SHARE this jewel with everyone you know who has a child to read to.
This truly amazing and free website features full length children’s books books available to read online. And not just books . . . but GREAT books. Currently you’ll find favorites pictures books like The Snowy Day, Llama, Llama Mad at Mama, The Hat, Lady Bug Girl and Bumblebee Boy, Madeline, SkippyJonJones, Amber Brown and hundreds more. The non-fiction is also incredible – topics your kids want with amazing full color photography at a variety of reading levels. And the most incredible part is it’s all free!
