We Give Books: Free Online Children’s Books

We Give Books is a digital initiative that enables anyone with Internet access to read free quality children’s books online. The website currently has a library of more than 200 children’s picture books appropriate for children through age ten. Readers will find a mix of fiction and nonfiction, a range of authors, and an equal balance between read-alouds and books for independent readers. New books are added every month including special seasonal offerings. Educator resources are also available by grade level here.

Created by the Penguin Group and the Pearson Foundation, We Give Books combines the joy of reading with the power of helping others. For every book that is read online, the program donates a book to a child in need.
