Read a book, give a book

March 19, 2012

We Give Books is a fabulous resource for readers who struggle with holding and manipulating a book or page turning. It also allows you to “share” favorite books with families as learners can read favorite selections at school or at home.

So…what does this website do? It allows on-line reading of popular picture books, including fiction and nonfiction books, old classics like “Little Engine that Could” and new classics like “Ladybug Girl”. Students can browse the topics list to find a book that suits their interests.

Perhaps the best part of this website it that you can donate one book to a literacy organization for every book you read online. There are always several organizations to choose from that remain on the site until they complete their donation goal. Current literacy organizations include Todos a Leer, United Way of Florida and Books for Asia.
