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


Attention, fellow book enthusiasts, parents, and caregivers of budding bookworms! Is your little one an avid reader or do they simply adore listening to your soothing voice as you read to them?

We are inundated with numerous requests to review children's books, and unfortunately, we can no longer keep up with reviewing all of them ourselves. It pains us to decline authors, as we hold a deep love for books and a strong desire to support the incredible individuals who both educate and entertain our precious little readers.

Recognizing that many of you have young book lovers at home or have experienced this joy in the past, we wanted to gauge your interest in a "Read and Share" program. This program would offer you the opportunity to receive free books in exchange for providing book reviews. Interested? Read on for details.

Here is a list of Back-to-School Programs and School-Supply Drives in and around Austin.

TerraCycle Recycling Programs

Do you pack fruit pouches in your child’s lunch box? Are pretzels, chips, or granola bars a snack-staple in your house? Are infant formula and baby food on your shopping list? What do you do with broken toys that cannot be fixed or donated?
