Books and Reading for a Cause!
This is a great link that provides two services, both worthy. First, you and your child can read online, and by reading, Pearson Publishing donates books to children around the world.
Reading from an actual book has all the wonderful feel and smell that you can only get from a book. But, our kids can have both. And, I remember my own kids often not wanting to pick a new book from the library. They kept going back to old favorites. So, use this site to try out new books with your child. When you go to the library, they might chose the ones you have read on line, and they will have the actual book experience, as well!
Set a goal: read! Help children who have no access to books while you build your own literacy!
