Read a Book Online, Help Give Books to Kids in Need

We just discovered a new favorite website: Here’s how it works–you choose a children’s book to read on their site. Then We Give Books will donate a book to a child in need.


In order to read most of the books, you will need to create a free login. However, all of the Editor’s Picks can be read by anyone on any device without a login.

There are a bunch of titles to choose from: classics like The Little Engine That Could, Madeline, and The Tale of Peter Rabbit. You’ll also find new gems like Robomop, No Fits, Nilson, and Otis.

So who’s behind this great idea? We Give Books was created by The Penguin Group and The Pearson Foundation. They found a way to combine the joy of reading with the power of helping others. Together, they hope that We Give Books will inspire young children, together with their parents or caregivers, to become lifelong readers and lifelong givers. We love that!

Below are some screen shots taken while we read a few books on their website.
