Books are for Reading
Books are for Giving!
I am forever looking for websites that support digital literacy and promote lifelong readers. This one takes the cake!
We Give Books was created by the collaborative team of Penguin Group and Pearson Learning. The mission of supporting literacy is carried out through their website, as well as their variety of non-profit partner programs and campaigns. Through this organization, students have access to wonderful e-books and have the opportunity to make a difference!

According to the website:
“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)
This foundation also sponsors Jumpstart’s Read for the Record, an annual event that engages communities across the country in supporting reading. My students and I participated in this great event earlier in the month by reading Llama, Llama Red Pajama with the rest of the nation. The kids felt good knowing they were helping other students become lifelong readers as well!
