Childrens Online Library

Check out this site for a huge selection of children's titles to read online in their original form.

It's not the same as turning pages of a book and handling the real thing, but its close.  It's not as quaint or romantic or nostalgic, but I am coming to believe that is okay.

And, if you have one of these babies, you could bring the "books" anywhere and always have them available.

How cool would it be to read the Infant's Cabinet of Birds and Beasts published in 1820 with your little one?

It's all about blending the old with the new.  Turn of the century texts with the latest  technology.  The classics you get to browse with a touch of a finger rather than collecting dust on your bookshelf.  Bringing authors back to life with convenience and ease.

Love this poem by Robert Louis Stevenson...its so true!

Or this book titled Chimes and Rhymes for Youthful Times published in 1871.

A page from the book and corresponding illustration:

Enjoy reading with your children!

I know I am.

Now, to figure a way to get that iPad.

I hear there is a new one coming out soon.
