December 27th, 2011

As part of my next book review, I thought I would show you something very interesting that my mom and I found. It is a foundation called We Give Books. For every e-book that you read on their website, they give a copy of it to one of three pro-literacy foundations. (Mom is very pro-literacy!)

You don’t have to be a bookseller or blogger to look at the books. Mom and I just signed up for an account and started reading.

One of the books that we read was called Good Luck Bear by Greg Foley. It is about a little bear who wants to find a four leaf clover for good luck.

It’s got cute illustrations! As you can see, it looks much like a regular picture book! You page through the entire book, and then at the end, a button appears that allows you to ‘give’ a book!

I imagine that Mom and I are going to have a lot of fun with this website! There are almost 160 picture books that you can browse through—and some of them are nonfiction books about all sorts of nature things too!

I hope you all enjoy this website find! Have a great day!
