14 Free Educational Books for Kids: Rhyming, Alphabet, Colors and Numbers

While I am a firm believer in children having access to real books, I have come to realize some value in using e-books on occasion. These educational books for kids are currently free for the Kindle and can develop your child's reading and rote counting skills.

Please note that while they are free as of the time of this posting, prices can change at any time. Always check the "Buy" price and not the "Prime" price prior to purchasing.
No Kindle? No worries! You can always download a free Kindle reading app or finally give in and purchase your Kindle Fire.
