It’s a small world – when you’re small May 22, 2008

Posted by sneaks in J is for Juvenile.

Have you ever noticed how beautiful the Korean picture books in BCPL’s collection are? Don’t you wish you could read them?

Well, at the International Children’s Digital Library Foundation’s web site, you can! Some of them, at least – not all of the outstanding children’s books from around the world that the Foundation has scanned and put online have been translated. But you can look through all of them page by page, read summaries, and compare versions of stories such as The Three Little Pigs from around the world.

The mission of the International Children’s Digital Library Foundation is to excite and inspire the world’s children to become members of the global community – children who understand the value of tolerance and respect for diverse cultures, languages and ideas — by making the best in children’s literature available online.

The scanned books are indexed by title, and by country.
