We Give Books

Who doesn't like free books? And who doesn't like giving books to children in need? We Give Books, a Pearson Foundation Initiative partnered with Penguin and DK, covers both of these.

In late May, while looking at sites for our Monday Meme, I found a link to the site We Give Books and was intrigued. The way it works is you sign up, pick which charity you would like to support, pick some books to read and then the more books you read, the more books they give to your charity. At the end of each book, you just push the "Give a Book" button- how easy is that. To make it even better, they have some great books!

Today I wanted to share with you some of the gems on We Give Books that I have either read or plan on reading and I hope you'll visit their site and help children in need be able to read as much as we do.
