Greetings everyone,

I am hoping to read more children's books in the public domain. Thought The Jungle Book might be a good place to start. I couldn't find the complete project of the book on here and I am just assuming that this is available as I found it on Gutenburg: https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/236

Another good book I would like to suggest is Oliver Twist: https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/730 (Just love the classics)

Let me know if anyone would like to be the BC. (As I am still a newbie, I should probably leave the coordinating in someone else's capable hands! :help: )

Much appreciated,
Tinybear08

Welcome to Librivox! Before you dive into a full-length novel, new users are typically strongly urged to contribute a few sections to group projects first. If you are specifically interested in children's fiction, there's a Children's Short Works collection up and going right now you can contribute to:

Basically with those, you just record whatever you'd like that's in public domain and upload it.

There are also a few children's fiction books looking for readers right now too:
