Actually this list is for summer reading programs for kids, it does not provide free books... unless I am missing something.
The reading programs offer a free book to kids who read a certain amount.  While its not the same as getting a free book a month without doing anything, it does fit with the title of this thread.

I've been uncomfortable with PJ Library's books for a while. The values most books promote goes directly against what I (and I imagine most frum parents) want my child to learn. The vast majority of books ended up in the garbage, but every now and then a decent book would show up.

Their Chanuka book just arrived, celebrating... intermarriage.

Subscription canceled.

Did y'all get the one by Julian Edelman?
"Jewish" because "a wise man once said 'if you will it, it is no dream.'"

Yeah, we cancelled long ago. Obviously not for the frumme velt (even though they have had some "parve" ones in the past).

If this is related to PJ then you should be happy you're not "in the area", lol.

Thank G-d for online stores that sell authentic Jewish books for kids (even if they're not free).
