We Give Books was started by Penguin Group and the Pearson Foundation to "support literacy through programs that engage entire communities through literacy and awareness programs". The We Give Books program is an initiative that allows anyone with Internet access to give books to children in need. When you sign up you can choose from one of five charities. Then you can select from one of 151 digital picture books (both fiction and non fiction) to read online.
This is all completely free for the reader! Simply choose the charity you want to read for and then select the books you want to read. For each book you read online, a book is donated to a leading literacy group on your behalf. So please sign up and support literacy.

Playing dress up is very important in a young child’s life and no child appreciates this more than Lulu.
Lulu is a smart and imaginative child, but when her mother tells her that she has to find her own entertainment for the day Lulu is lost. What can she do? Her brother Max does not want her around with his friends so off to her room she goes. That is not what a Ladybug Girls wants so out to the backyard she goes.
Ladybug girl has found her power in this outdoor world and sets about fixing and doing and helping. Just what Ladybug Girls are meant to do. See, she is not too little like her brother said; she can do many things.
Feeling as big as the whole outdoors, has put her in the perfect mood to realize that she is not so little after all.
Cute book with adorable illustration - my favorite being a little Ladybug Girl with her trusty dog looking over a large wall of books and counting all the L’s. This is a very powerful picture that has stayed with me more than another other illustration in the book.
