Today I came across a website devoted to putting children’s books in digital form for all to read online. The International Children’s Digital Library has the following 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.
So far I’ve found books relevant to our studies of medieval history, including some of G.A. Henty’s books.
The ICDL was named one of 25 Best Websites for Teaching and Learning by the American Association of School Librarians.
