We read... other less fortunate children receive books to read.

In the library we have recently introduced this wonderful initiative-We Give Books as part of our Global Studies. The digital stories are so easy to access and read as a class using our data projector, in groups or as individuals on our netbooks. Some of our classes have already started implementing the program in their classrooms and as part of their suggested homework.
           Combining the joy of reading with the power of helping others

 We Give Books was created by the Penguin Group 
                                         and the Pearson Foundation.
What a great encouragement and incentive to our students. 
Everytime a registered user reads a free online digital book the Pearson Foundation donated a book. View a video that outlines the project.

"We Give Books is a new digital initiative that enables anyone with access to the Internet to put books in the hands of children who don't have them, simply by reading online.
We Give Books combines the joy of reading with the power of helping others, providing a platform for caregivers and educators to inspire children to become lifelong readers and lifelong givers."

Please take a minute to log in or sign up and help share books with children who need them.

For every book members read online, We Give Books donates a book to a child who doesn't have one. It's easy and free.
Your family can choose which campaign it will support. 
There is NO cost,
however, you DO need to sign up and log in so they can track your reading.

Parents can visit: We Give Books - Read a book. Give a book. to discover ways to establish this fabulous initiative in your homes easily.

There are three classifications of books to choose from: New Releases, Popular and Classics. When you sign up the books that your children read are stored for easy reviewing in your library.

The students can use the topic words to search for books they are interested in:
