Update: My most current list of free Kindle books is here. (I’m sorry if you have been directed to this post through Tuesday Tots. I accidentally linked an old post!)
Several new free Kindle picture books for children were posted today that I think are worth sharing. Please remember to check the price before purchasing because most of these books will only stay free for a short period of time.
Many times free Kindle books are self-published and lack the quality of traditionally published book. But, they are useful for:
1) Entertaining small children and babies while on the go.
2) Storytelling: Have your child make up their own story to go with the photos.
3) Simple learning: Many of the photo books contain facts about animals or objects.
4) Reading practice: Kids think everything is more fun when gadgets are involved.

Train Pictures by Davis Lemmons
We really enjoyed this book about trains. It has no words, so my kid made up his own words. The variety of trains included was great with different types, eras, and scenes represented.
Horse Picture Book by Kelly Gerard
Like the train book this picture book is just a simple collection of horse pictures. Gerard does name the breed of each horse and includes an interactive table of contents too!
Who Is Hiding on the Farm by Cindy Bracken
I’ve read several of Bracken’s books, and overall we have enjoyed them. Preschoolers and toddlers will enjoy trying to figure out what animals are hiding behind the fence.
Harry Saves the Day by Kurt Zimmerman
This book by Zimmerman is cute and well-done. One caveat, I think that the message about being different is special can sometimes deal too flippantly with a serious problem. The characters in books seem to have an easier time proving their worth than children who struggle with being different. But, I think kids will enjoy it, and the message may help them appreciate others who are different.
I didn’t read all of these but if you like the simple photo books, here are a couple more:
Robots! 3-Pack of Robot eBooks – Robot Photos And Facts Make It Easy! (Over 145+ Photos of Robots)
Fruit! Learn About Fruit And Learn To Read – The Learning Club! (45+ Photos of Fruit)
