It's free as long as you have kindle or other devices. You could also download kindle for PC if you don't have Kindle Fire or something. :)

Just search "Children's Books" or Fairy Tales or Grimm's Fairy Tales and they should come up. :)

These websites summarize the daily free children's books Amazon offers.

You can also go to the Amazon website directly and click:
Books -> Children's books -> [Category] -> [Format: Kindle Edition] ->[Sort: Price: Low to high]
Amazon will show you the cheapest books ($0.00) first.

tuebl has a lot - browse by tag "Children"  there's a couple hundred or so there.  Also, I'm uploading a list of books I have - tagged by age recommendation from amazon - you can request over there if you see something you'd like to have or send me a message. 
Suzanne

Thank you so much for the list!!!! Great resource for someone like me who is just starting to look at kids lit :)

Suze I would love to have a copy of all of the ebooks you have listed on that list.  I just bought an ereader for my daughters who are 7 and 9.  My 9 year old is reading at a 7th grade level.  The ereader is a christmas gift and I would love to have it loaded with books for them.  You can email me at angelblade131 @ hotmail . com or at me.com

And just when I thought I had went through my list of websites :D I found one more which has both recent and not so recent titles (again, both for children and adults). :)  Their copyrights have either expired (public domain books) or books shared by the authors themselves.  A lot of links are from Project Gutenberg but there's even more goodies! It's:

which includes books like:


Enjoy. :-*
