Free Children's Books - Live Grow Play Austin “Read and Share” Program


Listen up, bookworms and Moms and Dads of future bookworms! Does your kiddo love to read or love to listen when you read to them?

We know that many of you are or have little book lovers at home, so we wanted to see if anybody would be interested in a “Read and Share” program, where you have the opportunity to receive free books in return for book reviews? Read on for details.
