The second week in November marks National Young Readers Week (NYRW). Now in its 24th year, this event was co-founded by Pizza Hut and the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress. The idea behind NYRW is to encourage literacy and celebrate reading through schools, communities and families.

If you missed out on reading any classical children’s literature when you were younger now is a great time to catch up. In support of NYRW, we’ve curated a collection of young adult literature (which we believe are available in the public domain, at least in the United States) and featured on the InternetArchive.org. Files are in book torrent format and we’ve gathered one book torrent for each day of NYRW.

Children’s literature book torrents

1. Alice In Wonderland, Lewis Carroll

With famous characters, like the Queen of Hearts and the March Hare, this story continues to be a favorite among readers and in pop culture.

2. Peter Pan, J. M. Barrie

Although this novel has plenty of fairies, pirates and mermaids in its pages, the main character leaves much to the reader’s imagination. Ageless, mischievous and able to fly – what more could anyone ask for?

3. Little Women, Louisa May Alcott

A coming of age story about four sisters, the widespread success and popularity of this book sparked Alcott to create several follow-up novels.

4. White Fang, Jack London

Written from the point of view of a wolf-dog that has been kidnapped, the animal returns to its roots to survive Canada’s Yukon Territory and the sometimes violent humans within it.

5. The Jungle Book, Rudyard Kipling

Adapted for stage, radio, movie and more, Kipling’s collection of stories are adventurous and captivating for both young and older readers alike. Mowgli’s Brothers and Rikki-Tikki-Tavi are the most well known tales.

6. The Wind In The Willows, Kenneth Grahame

This book about four animal friends was originally published in a text-only version, but has since been illustrated and annotated over the years. Either with pictures or without it is a pastoral story that infuses morality and adventure together.

7. Treasure Island, Robert Louis Stevenson

The one-legged pirate, Long John Silver, hails from this book, as well as many other pirate-esque elements — ‘x’ on a treasure map, tropical islands and parrots on shoulders. Often dramatized and available in several cinematic version this is a book that’s hard to put down.

If you’re reading with or to young people you can track time spent reading together with the Minute Tracker. School classrooms logged more than 126 million reading minutes in 2012, which means there’s plenty of ground to cover this year.
