Read the First Children’s Picture Book, 1658′s Orbis Sensualium Pictus | E-books and e-resources | Scoop.it
I've heard a fair few new parents agonizing about what children's books to admit into the family canon. Many of the same names keep coming up: 1947's Goodnight Moon, 1969's The Very Hungry Caterpillar, 1977's Everyone Poops — classics, all.

WORLDWIDE: First e-books of popular FAO titles now online | E-books and e-resources | Scoop.it

FAO has launched its first e-books, featuring bestselling titles from the world of food, agriculture and hunger eradication.

For now, the first titles are available for free download in formats compatible with major e-readers and tablets (iPad, Kindle, Kobo, Nook, Sony Reader and others) at the Organization's publications page.

More free publications will be uploaded during a pilot phase that will continue until later this year. Eventually, the books will be available from e-book stores.

"Offering selected titles in the increasingly popular e-book format is an important step forward," said Rachel Tucker, FAO acting publishing chief. "FAO's wealth of information on food, agriculture and hunger eradication will now be available in a format requested by a growing number of our audiences."

FAO's first e-books are available in English with other languages to follow: http://www.fao.org/publications/en/
