U.S. Kindle Store Edition: Kindle Nation Daily Free Book Alert, Saturday, September 25: 12 New “Freebie” Reasons Why a Child Near You Needs a Kindle, plus the magic of Disney’s Pinocchio blends with the magnificent quest of Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea in The Lake That Stole Children (Today’s Sponsor), and Links to Over a Million Free Kindle Titles

If there are children in your home, or your children’s homes, the time is going to come very, very soon when each of them is going to need a Kindle. Even better, we are even getting close to the time when each child is going to want a Kindle! I’m not trying to get you to click on these links to buy a dozen Kindle 3s or $139 wi-fi Kindles for all the children you know, although of course I won’t mind if you do. My real point is just to make sure you that you are up to date on how important Kindles are getting to be for kids who love to read, who have to read, or who realize (or have parents who realize) that reading is a huge key to their ability to thrive in the future. So, not to focus on homework on the weekend with today’s twelve new freebies in the Kindle Store, but I’m just thinking that the weekend tends to be the time when we see our kids for long enough to actually have a conversation….

But first … a word from Today’s Sponsor
In keeping with today’s theme, our sponsoring title today can work as a YA story or a read-aloud for younger kids….
The Lake That Stole Children blends the magic of Disney’s Pinocchio with the magnificent quest of Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea. It begins with a boy’s deep yearning and leads to a grown man’s startling discovery. The story begins with a town troubled by a big secret. Children have been disappearing and no one knows why. A fisherman, who lives with his family on the outskirts of town, cared nothing about the town’s troubles – until he too lost a son. Following a dangerous search on a nearby lake, the fisherman believes he knows where the children may be and vows to save them. When the town refuses to help in his quest, the fisherman realizes that to save his son he must face one seemingly insurmountable obstacle – himself.
Each day’s list is sponsored by one paid title. We encourage you to support our sponsors and thank you for considering them.

Twelve Kindle-Compatible Math and Science Textbooks

Can you imagine a future when high school students can work on their tans, shoot baskets in the driveway, or chill on the sofa while their Kindles read their homework assignments to them?
That future is here, and here are 12 very useful and very free high school math and science textbooks to prove it. With innovative public high school administrators like Clearwater High School’s Keith Mastorides buying Kindles by the thousands for their students, it is just a matter of time before we’ll see textbook publishers jumping through hoops to provide Kindle editions of their texts. But these 12 free math and science ebooks with text-to-speech enabled are a great start, and they are well worth downloading and keeping in your Kindle archives for whenever you or someone younger in your family might need them. They’re pretty good on the Kindle 2 or 3, fine on a Kindle DX, and especially user-friendly on an iPad, Mac, or PC. 
(Once you buy just about any Kindle ebook, it’s a snap to go to your Manage Your Kindle page and send the ebook to other registered devices to which you have downloaded free Kindle apps. See the screenshot above at the right.)
