Kids' Kindle Book: Blank Space 

Amazon Description: When teacher Miss Gonzalez asks her class to write about their favorite part of any book, one student answers honestly: The blank space! This story, written in concrete poetry, conveys the experience of many reluctant readers who choose a book by the size of the margins and text. This book’s elegant design, lyrical language, and abundant white space offer striving readers lots of time to co-create the story. 

Blank Space by Beth Bacon is a simple yet powerful exploration of the act of reading. The story asks, where exactly does reading happen? It happens somewhere between the words on the page and the reader’s heart and mind. The themes in this easy-to-read story can aid teachers, parents, reading specialists, and librarians in sparking discussions on reading strategies.

Children who are reluctant to read will see themselves in this hi-lo book for intermediate readers. Like Beth Bacon’s other books, I Hate ReadingThe Book No One Wants To Read, and The Worst Book Ever, this book validates the experience of today’s striving readers.

Most days we post a link to a free (at time of post) Kindle download for kids/young adults. One of the most important things we can do as parents is read with our kids! Exposure to reading can help children with early literacy and pave the way for success in school (and beyond!) as they get older.
Our hope is that these posts will help keep your digital library fresh with new material perfect for bedtime reading with babies, toddlers, preschoolers, school-aged, and even teens. You do not need a kindle to download or read these books with your child, just download the Kindle App to your device, or use the Kindle Cloud Reader on your computer. Enjoy!
