We Give Books

We Give Books is an initiative started by Penguin Group and Pearson Foundation. Create a free account and have access to thousands of books which you can then read on-line - picture books, fiction and non-fiction. Great to use on the interactive whiteboard for whole class reading time. Everytime you read a book, the organisation donates a book to a project around the world.
