How about some FREE Children’s eBooks for the iPhone / iPod Touch / iPad. Note that these eBooks don’t need Apple’s iBooks application to work. They are downloaded like apps but when you load them, they are books that you can read! Check out the four FREE eBooks available and enjoy some fun with the kids!

The book Dinosaurs! Dinosaurs! is free for download from the iTunes app store and the App Shopper.

Book Description:

From the creators of the hit ABC Dinosaurs (#2 Education App in March 2010) comes Dinosaurs! Dinosaurs! Kids will love the book app for its brightly-colored dinosaurs, rhyming verse and upbeat music.

FREE E-Book Download – ‘Quilting Unit Study for Homeschoolers’ By Maria Peagler

January 24, 2010 Leave a comment

Ebook Description:

Award-winning author, quilt designer, instructor, and homeschooling parent Maria Peagler offers a guide to teaching your own children through the art of quilting.

Incorporate hands-on quilting projects for girls and boys alike, to learn and apply art, mathematics, history, economics, and many other subjects.

Meant to accompany the quilting book, Color Mastery, but can stand alone.

Thought this might be handy for parents with kids (even those not homeschooled) who might be interested in arts and crafts (like quilting).

At any rate, it’s free for download at Smashwords and available in several convenient ebook formats (mobi, epub, pdf, rtf, lrf, pdb and html).

So click here to download if you are interested!

Read Online Full – Close Encounters of the Third-Grade Kind By Phillip Done

September 20, 2009 Leave a comment

Product Description:

A twenty-year veteran of the classroom, elementary school teacher Phillip Done takes readers through a lively and hilarious year in the classroom. Starting with the relative calm before the storm of buying school supplies and posting class lists, he shares the distinct personalities of grades K-4, what he learned from two professional trick or treating 8-year-old boys, the art of learning cursive and letter-writing, how kindergartners try to trap leprechauns, and what every child should experience before he or she grows up.

These charming, sweet, and funny tales of Mr. Done’s trials and triumphs as an award-winning schoolteacher will touch readers’ hearts and remind them of the true joys of childhood. We all have that one special, favorite grade school teacher whom we fondly remember throughout our adult lives – and every teacher also has students whom they will never forget. This is the perfect book for teachers, parents, and anyone else who is looking for a lighthearted, nostalgic read.

Click here or on the book cover above to be able to read the novel in its entirety online (hurry, since it’s not indicated when this offer expires).

It’s not really a free e-book in the sense that you can download and read later at your leisure, but hey, beggars can’t be choosers, right?

The site uses “Open Book” technology and looks like pages of pdf actually. Very easy to use and the pages are set at 100% with clear font, so it’s no biggie 🙂 And if you like it, support the author by buying a copy (Bookseller List)!
