Covid-19 has changed our world for the moment. I have no doubt we’ll be back to normal but for now some are struggling to provide food and basic necessities for their families. And, kids are unexpectedly at home when they should be at school. This leaves parents needing to find ways to entertain their children.
A local teacher asked me how to find free books for kids right now. So, in the spirit of helping, I’m inviting all authors who have FREE or Kindle Unlimited books for children, middle-grade, or young adult to add them to the comments section of this post to help parents find free eBooks for kids and teens while they’re at home.
I’m also offering the same thing only for parents and adult readers on another post if authors would like to share books for adults there as well. Click here.
PARENTS/READERS: Authors have posted a lot of great looking books for kids/teens in the comment section and I will be encouraging others to continue adding links in the comments. I’ll also continue to update this section when I find other programs. You may want to bookmark it so you can easily find new reads, events, and programs.
One of my very favorite celebrities of all time, Dolly Parton, will be reading bedtime stories on Thursday nights. She is such a remarkable woman and does so much to help others. This should be a fun for families.
Amazon is currently offering TWO FREE MONTHS of Kindle Unlimited.
Audible is currently offering free audiobooks for kids and teens while they’re at home for now as well. You can find audiobooks here. One of those books is Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (Sorcerer’s Stone here in the U.S.) read by Stephen Fry.
Hoopla has a ton of educational books for kids that you can borrow. If you’re not familiar with Hoopla it’s one of several websites that offer online library books, audiobooks, comics, television shows, and movies. I’m not sure which libraries offer it, but check with yours. I’m sure whichever service your library utilizes for online materials will have similar offerings.
Please share this post using the share buttons below. That will help others find books for their chilren. 🙂
Please consider leaving reviews for the books authors have provided for FREE. It’s not required, but authors really REALLY appreciate reviews.
You can also find more books for kids and teens on this Facebook post. There may be duplicates.
I’ll do my best to make sure only books appropriate for kids and teens are listed, but I can’t guarantee it. Please do your own due diligence when choosing books.
Unfortunately, I currently only have one young adult eBook (a zombie apocalypse) and it is only suitable for older teens. WARNING: Violence
In the beginning, all was normal. Until it wasn’t.
Fifteen-year-old Jenny and her twin brother, Jason, find their neighborhood in disarray. The neighbors are acting strangely, and the elderly gentleman who lives next door has left senility behind and gone straight to full-on crazy. Will they survive their first zombie encounter?
It is always free with a Kindle Unlimited Subscrition.
When I run across fun activities, videos, etc. for kids/teens, I’m adding them to my Facebook page for young adult and middle-grade readers. Normally, I try to keep it age relevant but for now, I’m sharing things for kids of all ages.
AUTHORS: To help make it as easy as possible for parents to find suitable books – please provide the following in your comment:
(Note: I also invite you to list books for adult readers on this other post.)

- Please list any appropriate warnings in regard to language or subject matter.
- *If you list a temporarily free book, please list the exact date(s) it is free.
