Just the other day, I heard someone say there really were not too many children’s books available in the Kindle store for her elementary school age kids. Wow! Maybe this person didn’t know about all of the children’s classics which were basically free, nor had they really taken a look at the offerings in the Kindle store?
If you click here or type this link into your web browser (http://tinyurl.com/yjs7pf7) you will be directed to the children’s Chapter books section of the Kindle store – here you will see a little over 16,000 books for children either for sale or free ones from the public domain.
Seems like there are a few more than not “too many.”

Of course, the links above may cost you some money. In keeping with the spirit of this blog, and I consider it free as it is only a penny, here’s one to try out for your younger kids called The Mountain of Marvels: A Celtic Tale of Magic, Retold from The Mabinogion. It’s received an average rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars based on three customer reviews, is ranked #1,896 in the Kindle store, and you can pick up your copy by clicking here.
Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
A thousand years ago, in the Celtic kingdoms of Wales, great lords gave great feasts for their fighting men and courtiers. In timbered halls, for days on end, heaps of meat and bread were washed down with gallons of beer and mead. And in between the meals, when bellies were stuffed and spirits high, the storyteller rose and spun his tales of times long past.
He told of lords, bold and generous. He told of ladies, grand and glorious. He told of friends, brave and faithful. But of all he told about, no friend was more reliable than Manawydan, son of Llyr. No lady was more admirable than Rhiannon. And no lord was more honorable than Pwyll, King of Dyfed.
The halls are now long gone — yet some tales were written down and gathered in a book we call today The Mabinogion. And so the tales live on. . . .
