Free EBooks for Kids {The Children’s Bookshelf}

It’s Monday, and I have a nice list of free picture books and novels for kids today. As I read through parts of these books, I noticed that many of them (including the novels) were well-written and looked like books that kids would enjoy. I am especially happy that today’s list of free kids’ eBooks includes a number of novels and chapter books for elementary through middle-grade readers. At the bottom of this post, you will also find today’s link-up for The Children’s Bookshelf.

Welcome to my new readers. Be sure to read through the following:

  • Don’t forget to check prices before downloading.
  • You can read a Kindle eBook on non-Amazon devices by downloading their free app unto your PC or i-pad. 
  • This list only reflects my personal opinion.  
  • This blog uses affiliate Amazon links. 
  • If you want to read all about how I find these books, create these lists, and choose what to feature, read my FAQ on Finding Free EBooks.

My survey is still open for those who have not answered yet. I would love to know your preferences about my lists so that I can better tailor them for you. 

Some of the best free kids’ books available today are:

lexi fairheart and the forbidden door
Lexi Fairheart and the Forbidden Door
written by Lisl Fair and Lisa de Polonia
Lexi learns the importance of listening and obeying when she sneaks through a forbidden door into a room that holds a dangerous secret. Lisa de Polonia’s excellent illustrations in this picture book are fun to look at, and children will be fascinated by a story involving danger and surprise.

kaya stormchild by lael whitehead
Kaya Stormchild by Lael Whitehead
I read the first page of this novel and found the idea of a child raised by eagles fascinating. The summaries promise a delightful plot about a mystery of danger surrounding the eagle families.

Search for the Pirate's Treasure by Gerry Gaston
Search for Pirate’s Treasure by Gerry Gaston
I wish that this picture book would have had more of an actual story and easier to read text, BUT I loved the creative twist on a choose-your-own-adventure style book by having your child use the touch screen to enter different parts of the pirate ship. This book would be a great book to download for entertaining a small child at the doctor’s office or in the car. I’m hoping that this book is a concept that the publisher improves and polishes to create some fun, interactive books.

These three books just are a couple of the books that I found today. You will also find another Robert Elmer novel, a bedtime picture book, and more.

You can find the rest of my list on Amazon:
