Free Books For Kids

This post has nothing to do with art. This is about reading: something else I’m passionate about. Read on to find out what you can do to make sure everyone gets the chance to learn to read.

Reading is one of the most important skills you will ever learn. If you never learn how to read you won’t be able to order food at a restaurant or find your way around a city. You won’t be able to graduate from school. If you never learn to read you’ll never know the pleasure of getting lost in the world of a good book. But many families can’t afford to buy books for their kids and this can mean that those kids never become good readers.

You may have noticed the orange button on the right side of the screen. Click the button and you’ll see a large, rectangular, orange button that says “Click Here to Give—It’s Free!” When you click that button the website’s sponsors give money to buy books for kids in poor families. You should click everyday so lots of kids can have books to read. Every click helps and it doesn’t cost you a thing!
