Anyone know where I can get childrens books in pdf? I am overseas and want to download pdfs and despite lots of searching I cant find anything, which surprised me. I can pay.

I want to print out books, for my seven year old who is currently interested in nonfiction, facts and stuff about various things, planets, animals, etc., but I love stories.

I dont have access to english language books in hard copy.

help!

Hi there Smile

Wowio has some neat stuff for kids and a pretty big selection. They're not free, but you can preview them online and buy them as PDFs. Smile

Manybooks has free, public domain (i.e., old) books, also available in PDF. They don't have much stuff post-1920 because of copyright law, so that might not be too helpful when it comes to nonfiction, but they have lots of classics. I read a -lot- of books from there, so if you'd like some recommendations, I might be able to pull out a few. Smile

Hope this helps! Smile

Maybe these? http://www.childrensbooksforever.com/

I also found this site--it might point you in the right direction. Smile http://www.techsupportalert.com/free-books-children I don't really know where to find children's books, unfortunately. Razz

Hope this helps Smile
