Free Kids Books

Books are separated into categories for toddlers, children, and young adults as reading levels vary significantly among countries, especially those where English is not a home language. Toddlers’ books contain very few words, children’s books are picture books of short length, and books for young adults are chapter books with an occasional picture.
