GoogleLitTrips Reading List's curator insight, August 28, 2013 12:50 PM

How's this for a gold mine for kids, parents and educators?

 

One of my very favorites is the International Children's Digital Library. Feels like you're reading the original book. And, my two favorite features are that the collection includes children's books from many cultures AND that many of them can be read in both the original language and in multiple translations of the original. And, the translations are embedded in images of the original pages complete with illustrations.

 

Explore, enjoy, recommend...
