Digital Picture Books

I came across a couple sites recently that allow you to read digital picture books online, clicking through the book page by page. Of course, it's not quite the same as reading a real picture book, but the graphics are quite nice and you get a feel for the book. Then you can decide whether to buy the real thing.

These sites are a boon to librarians who select children's books (the paper kind) because you can see how the artwork and text work together, and get a sense of how the book would work in a group story time setting. I guess you could project the digital book onto a screen from a computer and read along as you click, but something would be lost...

International Children’s Digital Library
