    Free online library with a dual purpose. Every time a book is read here, Pearson Foundation donates a book to charity causes identified at the site. Books can be searched by age range (0-3, 4-7, & 8-10), author, or genre. Books are presented as Flash files, so most screenreaders will not work with it. Snap & Read by Don Johnston will.
