The Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy partnered with Worldreader to develop this free digital resource for adult learners, families, and adult educators. The collection includes a variety of high-interest texts for adult learners at different reading levels and a diverse selection of books for families to read together. Each month, a new collection of books is launched.
