Free Ebooks


Technology is all around us, shaping how we as a society work, play and learn. Educational games, apps and e-books are terrific resources for helping young children learn about the world around them, increase their vocabulary and fall in love with reading. Reading Is Fundamental understands the power that books provide but for many of the children we serve, books are a luxury their families can’t afford.

That’s why RIF has partnered with ustyme to give the gift of a billion free e-books to the communities we serve. All families across the nation can access 50 classic e-books absolutely free, without advertising or fees of any kind.

Children can read e-books of their choosing independently, side-by-side with a caring adult or remotely in a live video call using the ustyme app. The app works for most devices, including Apple and Android devices, Chromebooks and any computer with internet access. Books including classics such as Goldilocks, Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs and more are digitally mastered in HD and available in English and Spanish.

Be sure to tell your family and friends about the Billion e-Book Gift from ustyme and RIF with this easy-to-use toolkit.
