It would be fun to let children look at books and stories from the many worldwide cultures that we study over the course of the year. Yet developing that sort of library could get very expensive. Well this is where becomes very helpful. It is a very broad collection of children's books from a wide range of cultures and languages. The site is well designed and allows to browse based on a variety of methods for example age based or topic based. It also has powerful search capabilities.

Admittedly it is not a substitute for a quality collection of real books, but at the price of free it is a way to introduce books language and culture to our classroom without paying hundreds of dollars. Although it is free if you use it a lot, I recommend making a donation.

If you are looking to add international real books to your collection here are a few suggestions.
