The University of Florida's Digital Collections offers ahuge library of digitized children's books. 

 

All of the children's books in the collection can be read online. Reading the books online could be a bit difficult for some as there is a border with menus surrounding each page of the books. To avoid that, you can print all of the books for free. The printed version does not display anything but the book as it was scanned.

Case study on teacher union partnership with school library association to support status of school libraries in British Columbia

Very few states or provinces in the US, Canada and Australia still have this kind of active partnership between the teachers' union and the school library professional association. But this case study shows how difficult even teacher unions find it to advocate for school library positions in schools. Although, one advantage of union support is the union's access to school-based data on staffing etc. Well worth a read if you are fortunate to be working in an education system with teacher union support.
