So Many Books, So Little Time

Here is very cool thing that my very cool sister-in-law Lisa just shared with me: the International Digital Children's Library. These are scanned books from the Library of Congress, in digital format online (for free!). Kids were an integral part of the design and choice team, and it looks terrific. The books have to be read on screen, and the system requires the download of a 6M file, but it's worth it, to get easy access to "materials donated from 27 cultures in 15 languages."

If you feel there must be kids around to go into this site, and do not have any currently in residence, then borrow a couple; it's worth it.
