Free Books!

I recently found out about a great interactive website that promotes reading and helping others--a win-win. It is called "We Give Books" and is sponsored by the Pearson Foundation. The way it works is simple: you sign up (free) and select a book to read online. Then you select a group you would like to support. You can read it to your own children or to a classroom of children. When you have read your book, the foundation donates a book to the campaign you have selected.

I plan to do this regularly with my kindergarten classes in the fall, to promote and practice reading as well as to help them think about others.
