Multicultural e-books for kids

If your kids are online and looking for books to read, why not try a digital library?

Here’s one I think is interesting:

International Children’s Digital Library

located at

http://en.childrenslibrary.org/

The mission of the International Children’s Digital Library Foundation (ICDL Foundation) is to support the world’s children in becoming effective members of the global community – who exhibit tolerance and respect for diverse cultures, languages and ideas — by making the best in children’s literature available online free of charge. The Foundation pursues its vision by building a digital library of outstanding children’s books from around the world and supporting communities of children and adults in exploring and using this literature through innovative technology designed in close partnership with children for children.

Ever want to read a book in Farsi or Croation? They have it!

In My Mailbox

The Story Siren has a really fun meme called In My Mailbox where she highlights books that she receives in the mail.

Doesn’t that sound interesting?

I’m always curious as to what other books reviewers get in the mail and now here’s my chance to snoop learn!

I couldn’t do this without the assistance of my trusty Book Page, Bailey, who will be leading this endeavor.

This week, Bailey helped me unpack:

Lovesick by Spencer Seidel

I Know Who you are and Saw What you Did by Lori Andrews

FRESHMAN YEAR AND OTHER UNNATURAL DISASTERS by Meredith Zeitlin (this one is a PDF but he likes to help anyway)

 

Watch for my reviews in the future!

Let’s go on a journey with a book, shall we?
