Famous Classic Children’s Stories

I’ve just added, Rudyard Kipling’s Just So Stories. It is a collection of classic kids stories such as How the Lepoard got His Spots, the Elephant’s Trunk, the The great thing about these public domain kids stories are that you can find them in many formats, for example, they’re all available on Librivox as audio books for listening to […]

Audio Books – Libriovox

I’ve been listening to audio books lately – I never thought I’d do that! But it makes the roads safer when you’re driving ;-). It’s really opened my eyes to a whole new possibility of books, for example, next time we’re on a long drive with the kids, I am going to try some kids classic […]

Information about Permissions for use of Books on this Site

I get a fairly large number of emails from people asking if they can use the books on this site. I’d love people to use the books herein, especially for charities/non-profits, and wish I could, but unfortunately it’s not that simple.  All of the books belong to the individual authors, and unless the permission for use […]

Learning to Read : Short Stories and Short Words

I really love the new book on our site – We Go To Bo. Author Larry Baum has written the book entirely composed of two letter words (now available here on Createspace!). The book really inspired me. It provides so much confidence for a child to be able to read a book fully from cover to […]

Word Rebel

I’ve received an enquiry from a non-profit, Word Rebel, about featuring some of the books on our website on their literacy blog  and newsletter. This will help more people find the books on our website, and  helping more children on their path to literacy.  – Thanks Word Rebel!! Each week they feature links to three books, and they share […]
