Early Children’s Literature – ERB Library of FREE Classic Ebooks [Kindle/More]

Early 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 (1st in the series):  [ Classics of Ancient History ]

This week we focus on Early Children’s Literature (Pre-1900). We have selected the following books as recommended reading.
Next week we will continue the focus on Children’s Lit with a list of 20th century classics…
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.
