2 Free Chapter Books for Kids

Elementary children have a variety of new books available, in addition to a lot of the classics. Here are a few promising-looking freebies I found while combing the Amazon site today. Please note that while the Kindle editions are free as of the time of this posting, prices can change without warning. Please always check the "Buy" price and not the "Prime" price prior to purchasing.

 Tales From the Glades of Ballymore
This book for children has been created in a similar fashion as the classic Wind in the Willows. A self-sustained community of animals has many adventures in the Irish countryside in the late 1800s. Illustrations in full color add to the theme of the Golden Rule. It is recommended for children ages 8-12, but younger children can also enjoy it being read aloud. At the end are a list of discussion questions for parents and teachers to use with the book.

 Samantha Loses the Box Turtle
Samantha's grandfather rescues a box turtle and brings it home for her. But Samantha's mother says she cannot keep it. Read about her zany adventures as she loses the box turtle. This chapter book has 15 illustrations, as well as an informational section about box turtles at the end of it.
