In celebration of Children’s Book Week, Amazon is giving away 16 highly rated children’s ebooks through today, May 8. The promotion follows Amazon’s World Book Day deals, in which the company gave away 10 free Kindle ebooks from around the world. You must have an Amazon account to download the books and a Kindle, Amazon Fire tablet or the Kindle app on a phone, tablet or PC to read them, but there aren’t any restrictions or special memberships needed — you don’t need Amazon Prime — to download them.
Aside from the free ebooks, Amazon’s Children’s Book Week landing page also has “tips to keep kids engaged in reading and building literacy skills all year long.” Amazon says the literacy tips were developed with its nonprofit partner, Reading is Fundamental.
Also worth noting: You can download a free Children’s Book Week Poster from everychildaread.net that was created by Raúl The Third, an award-winning artist, author and illustrator.
