Here is my newest list of free Kindle picture books. As more these books continue to increase in quality (and quantity), I am trying to post lists of my favorites frequently. Remember, these e-books likely will only be free for a matter of hours, so check prices and download today if you want them!
If you want to be sure not to miss my free Kindle picture book lists, don’t forget to subscribe via RSS feed (see side panel) so that you get the lists while the books are still free.
You Make Me Proud
This cute story is about a game between a daddy panda and his son where they swap turns leaving post-it notes about how the other one’s behavior makes them proud. The ending falls a little flat, but the illustrations are nice and the writing pleasant.
I Did It by Jungmin Park
Maci is making strawberry shortcake and everyone is invited to follow along. The illustrations are bright and formatted extremely well to fit the screen of the Kindle Fire.
Building Character: Devotions for Children by Betty Ward Cain
This devotional is a professionally published work (2007) that is being offered now digitally. The devotionals are simple and contain activities and songs (due to the length I did not read the entire book.)
Everyday Colors by Kay de Silva
I love this baby book by Kay de Silva. It has bright photos and is of professional quality.
If you missed the first free Train Picture ebook, here is a new one containing over a hundred photos of trains with no words. I like these no word ebooks for small children who aren’t reading yet. They can look at the photos and even make up their own stories.
Horses by Kay de Silva
This horse book contains a wide variety of information about horses, and the photos are engaging.
Beetles by Planet Collection
The photos in this picture book are a little small in my opinion, but this book still has an engaging text and look.
Who Plays in the Musical Zoo? by Jackie Jeffrey
Each page features a part of an animal playing a musical instrument, revealing the full animal on the following page. I wish the animals would have been portrayed a little more realistically as even I had trouble guessing what was next. Small children will enjoy the “peek-a-boo” like effect though.
Puppies by Cindy Bracken
I know I have heard good responses before about Cindy Bracken’s early readers. This reader (level 2) is excellent, and children will love looking at the photos of dogs.
“Verses that Mean a Lot”: Coping with Illness and Grief by Audry Coatesworth (Note: no illustrations)
I did not have time to read this book, but I thought it deserved to be mentioned due to its serious topic. Books written to help children with grief are rare, and Coatesworth deals professionally with grieving children and writes from her experience.
Here are a couple ideas to make free Kindle picture books even more fun:
- Have your children make up their own story using the pictures in the book.
- Save the books for special reading in the car or while waiting on the go.
- Use them to inspire an imaginative scene or props using household materials.
I would love to hear which books you like (and dislike) from these lists and why so that I can make them better reflect the books that you would like to see listed.
