Goodnight iPad (a modern bedtime tale) & We Give Books
Two things to share tonight. 🙂 One is the We Give Books website/program. It’s simply too awesome NOT to share. And the other is a book we stumbled across while there.
We Give Books is an incredible website where you can read new, classic, and popular Penguin Books titles to you children… for free. That’s right. FREE. We only discovered the site this afternoon and have already gone through seven titles that were brand new to us (the girl loves the Ladybug Girl books).
You can sign up for free (there’s that word again) using your FB or Twitter account, or the old fashioned way by filling out a form. Then you choose a campaign to support… which is where We Give Books gets even better – yep. Better than free! Can you imagine? What happens next? Just pick out a book and start reading. When you get to the end, a button will show up that says “give a book”. Click it. Know what that means? It means a book has just been donated to whichever campaign you chose to support.
Check it out!!! Seriously!

Now while you’re there, you have to look up “Goodnight iPad”. It’s way too freakin’ awesome. A parody on the classic bedtime story “Goodnight Moon” for those of us who are plugged in. It really is fabulous, and, no joke, it had my husband and I laughing out loud as we attempted to read it to the kid. 😉
So, there you go! Two fabulous discoveries!
Now get reading!
