We Give Books!

Now that I am a School Librarian, I am always looking for ways to marry traditional library lessons with technology.  I recently discovered an excellent resource that gives me access to entire books online AND donates books to different charity campaigns.  The website is called We Give Books  and it is run by the philanthropic arm of the Penguin Group and the Pearson Foundation. 

The campaign I have chosen to donate to is LitWorld, which brings books to the children of the Navajo Nation.  Every time I read my students one of the online books in the We Give Books library, I click on Give a Book.  The site then sends a book to my campaign.  It is simple and simply wonderful!  I encourage all of you to sign up and help out this admirable cause!
