In case you weren’t already aware, this week is National Children’s Book Week, which aims to honor the life-changing potential of books.
Now, I don’t know about your house, but in our house we spend a lot of time looking at, reading, and talking about books. And bodily functions, but that’s another story for another day.
In honor of Children’s Book Week, and in an effort to make your life easier, I rounded up a few of the best websites that are dedicated to children’s book and literacy programs. Whether you’re curled up on the couch with your kids and your favorite hard cover, or at the computer reading books together online, take some time this week to celebrate everything that books can add to our children’s lives.
And be sure to check out my website recommendations after the jump!
International Children's Digital Library
From their mission statement: "The ICDL Foundation's goal is to build a collection of books that represents outstanding historical and contemporary books from throughout the world. Ultimately, the Foundation aspires to have every culture and language represented so that every child can know and appreciate the riches of children's literature from the world community."
You and your kids can explore books from around the world, broken down by area, language, age range, subject matter and even the color of the book's cover. And, obviously, all of the books are available for online reading.
