Children’s Literature (Pre-1922) – ERB Library of FREE Classic Ebooks [Kindle/More]

October 16, 2013

 

Children's LiteratureThis is the latest post in a series that will, in effect, create a library of classics that are available as free ebooks.

Last week’s post:  [ Early Children’s Literature ]  1st post in this series: [ Classics of Ancient History ]

This week we focus on Children’s Literature (Pre-1922). We have selected the following books as recommended reading.
This is a follow-up to last week’s post…

These are important books that would be great for children to read or for families to read aloud together. This list is also a great resource for homeschooling families.

In 2013, we are encouraging our readers to mix up their reading habits, and read (or re-read) classics in addition to new books, such as the ones we review here in the ERB.

Broadly speaking, a classic is any book that is not a new book, or in other words that is worth reading five, ten or even one hundred years after its initial publication. ERB Editor Chris Smith has an article on The Huffington Post website arguing for reading a mix of classics and new books in 2013.
