He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart;
he gently leads those that have young
. {Isaiah 40:11}

Free Ebooks for Kids

Bethany from No Twiddle Twaddle has compiled a lovely list of free ebooks from Amazon that she considers to be twaddle free. 
In case you're wondering... "twaddle" is defined by Webster as "something insignificant or worthless". Charlotte Mason uses it to describe many different things but in this case, it would be referring to children's books that talk down to children, are dumbed down for easy reading, lack any real content. In a seminar I recently attended, it was defined as such
"If there i a book that your child brings to you regularly and you cringe 
every time they do, it very well may be 'twaddle'".
I am not saying that the list of books Bethany has pulled together are sure fire winners because I haven't read them all myself but 1. they are FREE! and 2. you can always delete the ones you don't like. I have put a few on my phone with future waiting room trips in mind.

The link to Bethany's site can be found here at NoTwiddleTwaddle.com
There is a second, longer list found here on Bethany's Amazon reading list.
{Be sure to check prices as some of them are only temporarily free!}


  1. Thanks so much for telling about my site. : ) I love your comment about how some of the free Kindle books might be twaddle but they are free! I'll be following.

  2. You're welcome, Bethany! I'll be back to visit you soon, for sure!


I always love a good comment.
