What We Like
  • Nice selection of mystery, fantasy, and science fiction titles.

  • Has a newsletter that sends info on new free books to your email.

What We Don't Like
  • Lack of a genre-targeted search makes it challenging to find books you want.

Among other genres, FreeBooksy has free Kindle books for kids found in the Children's and Young Adult sections.

New books are added often, but not always in this particular category, which means the ones you browse through may already be expired.

Their email subscription service is great because you can sign up to receive children's books only instead of other genres.

What We Like
  • No late fees on overdue library books.

  • Borrow audio books for free.

What We Don't Like
  • Requires a library card from your local library.

Participating libraries let you check out free Kindle kids books through OverDrive, similar to checking out a physical, paper book.

Over 300,000 eBooks for children are available in sections of this website like Young Adult Fiction, Young Adult Non-Fiction, Juvenile Fiction, and Young Adult Literature.

Once you've had a book for a few weeks, it will automatically be taken off your Kindle, which is a bit similar to a regular book lending program that involves non-digital books.

For more information on how OverDrive works, see Amazon's customer service on how to borrow Kindle books from a public library.

What We Like
  • Lots of unique books for kids.

  • Some books can be read online, others downloaded.

  • No need to make a user account.

  • Several categories split up books by age group.

What We Don't Like
  • Website is often very slow; sometimes never loads.

FreeKidsBooks.org is an accurate name because that's all they have on this site: free books for toddlers have lots of pictures and few words, children books are few pictures and lots of words, and the free eBooks for kids and young adults have no significant pictures and are more lengthy.

You can pick any age group to see the selections in those categories, and every section can be sorted by popularity and date.

Below the description of each book is the download count and, for some, a Read Online option if you'd rather do that than download it. Many files have two options: PDF and EPUB.

The Fussy Librarian

What We Like
  • Downloads are made through Amazon.

  • Two categories for various ages.

What We Don't Like
  • Small selection.

  • Filtering tool doesn't work.

A handful of more kids eBooks can be found at The Fussy Librarian. Select any and you'll go straight to Amazon where you can send the book directly to your Kindle.

There aren't a ton of choices for kids books, though. A small collection is categorized as Children's/middle grade and a few more under Young adult. Unfortunately, adult books are listed right next to them and the filtering option to hide them doesn't appear to work.
