Reading Books Online

Remember those great books we read as kids? Can’t find them anywhere?

If they are no longer copyright protected in the US, you could find it at Project Gutenberg. This site is a treasure find of old books. I copied ebooks of all the Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy stories with art work.

This had not just children’s books, but books form all over the world in all languages. Have a favorite author from long ago? Check them out here. This site is defiantly worth exploring, if you like books.

These books are flip books, meaning even though they are ebooks, the pages turn instead of scroll. Depending on your internet connection these can take a while to upload. You can preview the book and purchase either an e-book or hard copy.

Here you’ll find e-books you can preview for free or purchase in multiple languages, free stuff like games, stories and more. They’ve also put together for you a list of sites for teachers. They have hundreds of sites here, so you don’t have to search all over the net for them.

With e-books becoming popular, there are many places you can go online and read books with your children. Here are a few to get you started.

Children’s Storybooks Online
The Rosetta Project These are antique storybooks you can read online.

See you back here on Monday with another great book that goes beyond reading.

Thanks for stopping by. I got a note from Lookybook that they have shut down. This is sad because they offered a nice service.
Enjoy looking at the others.
