Read a Book. Give a Book.

Reading with my kids is one of life's pleasures. Today I discovered the most fantastic website that lets my kids and I read together online for free - and for every book we read, a book is donated to a leading literacy group on our behalf.

We Give Books is an easy and fun way to spread literacy around the world by supporting such organisations such as World Vision in Haiti, Room to Read or United Through Reading.  And the books they have online are great.  They even have Corduroy by Don Freeman - a book I remember fondly from my childhood and haven't seen in ages.

What better way to help your own kids enjoy the world of books  - and teach them about philanthropy.  So grab a kid . . . and get reading!!
