More Online Books for Children - FREE

I have been searching the internet for free online books for children. This posts follows Part 1 with ten more websites offering free books. For each site I have given a description of what they offer and a link to their website. You will find a range of books from well known to self published and interactive to scanned pages. Some of the websites offer many free books other have just a few. I have not given my opinion on the resources as I think it is important for you to decide what is best for you.
 
I would love to hear your comments on the books on offer and if you know of any additional websites offering free books.
