Free Book Fridays!

Free Book Fridays!

At KidPub we love books. As the saying goes, if you love something, give it away... that's a saying, isn't it? 

Each Friday we will select a winner of the book of the week, and post the title of the book for the next week's drawing. Check back here to see who has won! The drawing is open to KidPub members only. Joining is easy and is just $14.95 for a lifetime membership...here's the form to get started.

Some of the books will be from the KidPub Press bookstore, and some will be special Advance Reader Copies (ARCs) of books that we have received from publishers such as Scholastic, and some will be from the big stack of books that publishers regularly send to us as promotional copies.

Entering is easy, just click here to enter your email address in the current drawing. Please note that entering more than once doesn't improve your chance of winning...we delete the duplicate entries before drawing a winner. The drawing starts fresh every Friday, so be sure to enter each week!
