“Free Kids Books is a growing library of unique children’s books and literary resources available for download in a user friendly pdf format.
We aim to provide easy access to great free children’s books and resources, for the enjoyment of reading and writing, and to promote improved literacy standards, and thus improved lives.”
Books are separated in to categories for toddlers, children, and young adults, we felt this easiest since reading levels vary significantly between countries, especially those who English is not a home language.
|Books with LOTS of Pictures and FEW Words||Books with FEW Pictures and LOTS of Words||
Books with NO Significant Pictures, and Chapter Book Length Books.
|*Please note this site does not have any “YA” books as it is a “children’s” book site, our YA section is aimed for children under 12 years, more traditionally known as “MIDDLE GRADE” and does not contain any sensitive material.|
Great Free Kids Books, Is there a catch?
No! We just love books (and, sorry, we put up a few sponsored ads, to help pay for it). If you like the books, all we ask in return is that you please share them and your feedback with others, leave a comment about the book under the review tab for the author and other readers, like us on face book, or share the site with your friends, as you feel best, based on your on reaction to our books. The authors really appreciate your feedback and interaction, and we really appreciate your support.
If you really really like the books, most books are available as hard copies to purchase for your own child or as a gift for someone else.
If you would like to submit a book for this site send us an email titled FREE KIDS BOOK SUBMISSION containing the following information:
1. Your site address where you want people to buy the book
2. Your book pdf (or a link to the download if it’s large)
3. A short description of the book
4. Short text or quotes from any reviews
5. Any additional information you’d like us to know – but keep it brief and to the point!

Reading the Books in pdf
We find the best way to use the pdf picture books is to print the pages and staple them or keep them together in a slip file or folder. Another great way to read pdfs is on an electronic device such as a tablet or e-reader. Chapter books may be printed and put in a file to read, but work better on a tablet, phone, or e-reader.
This is a very cost effective way to ensure children can have many great books to read over and over. Books can also be easily changed depending on your child’s interest, and pages can even be drawn on, as replacing pages is so easy to do.
Children often are not very careful with books when they are young, and a printed copy can easily be used for every day play, and if you like the books, again, you can
buy the hard copy and keep it aside for later (when your child hopefully has learnt to look after their favourite things a little better).
Another great advantage of printable pdf books is for colouring books. Electronic format colouring books need not be thrown away when the pages are used! And you can print many copies of the same page for fun trial and error colouring, allowing your child to keep the best ones for use in the flip file or scrapbook.
Again, if you do like the book, and your child want’s to read it over and over again, the easiest way to get a convenient hard copy, is to buy a copy!
Alphabet and learning to read interactive series are now available in both pdf and in an editable open document form under the files tab. There are no restrictions on the use of these files, however we appreciate if you put a reference in to our site as the source.
We really appreciate if you take the time to write a short message to us to help us improve the books and information contained here, post a reply or send me an email directly.

About the Site Editor (all about me!):
This site is managed and edited by me, Danielle Bruckert.
I am a professional pilot, that is, I make my primary living out of flying aircraft. I have published several aviation text books commercially, my most successful is the “Cessna Training Manual” series, which I co-author with a colleague Oleg Roud.
I write children’s books as a hobby, as I find it a wonderful creative release, with many rewarding side effects. Yes, sure, I harbour the intention of creating a best seller one day, both for the impact on children, and the opportunities it may create for me, I think all authors do, but, it’s not the reason I write, I just love writing, and being read. I am happiest when someone (yes, even just one person), is touched by one of my books.
I originally created Free Kids Books (FKB) to be an outlet to gain readership, reviews, feedback, and exposure for my own free kids books. Since the free publishing sites I was with didn’t offer what I needed, but what grew from this concept was much, much more.
Soon after developing FKB I realised it wasn’t much use to people to have only my books there, so I started searching online for other people who had provided free children’s books, asking them if they’d like to have them on the site. Along the way, I was surprised to find, that there are virtually no sites available specifically for downloading free good quality children’s books.
After discovering this, my aim changed. I now wanted to provide the best free childrens’ book download site there could be, for parents, authors, ESL students, but primarily for the kids.
This has been a slow process, since I work full time, and have two little ones of my own, and my web developer also has a day job, – but over time, we’re getting there, and I do hope you’re all enjoying it.
I love working on the site, but I love more what the site brings. For parents and children, more books! For authors, more exposure, and networking opportunities. For teachers, more resources. For me, I love connecting with readers and authors, I love when people enjoy the site, and I love the knowing we’re contributing in some small way to improved literacy. Along the way I’ve also gained some great feedback for my own books, (aka the original aim :-), some great research from others books, and made some great friends.
I hope you enjoy the site, please email me if you have any feedback or comments (firstname.lastname@example.org), or post a public comment at https://www.facebook.com/freekidsbooksliteracyforlife, as this helps others too.
