I predict that this site will grow and grow - as contributions of scanned books come in.

Do not panic - when the screen goes black - it will return. And you Do Not need to register - just use "close" for the box.

Looking over the shelves. What to scan? Flying House has seven more years until it is 72 yo...Sambo would be a real winner - but there might be someone out there with an Adz to chop it up. Prairie Flowers, has no color....ahhhh....Rhymes for Kindly Children it is old and colorful

You can also read old (or less old) books on line at the International Children Digital Library. There are books in 54 languages and even if we can't actually read them all because we don't know all the languages, I'd recommend to take a look at some of the Persian books with so beautiful illustrations -I'm sorry to say that the French ones are quite lousy but you might find the Old Songs and Ballads for children by M.B. de Monvel of some use.

Thanks, greg.

My grandson will really enjoy these, esp. ones with the pages which can be turned. I started collecting old picture books years ago with a couple of ones I inherited.

MONIQUE - That is a GIANT collection. I was overwhelmed at first.

Thank you for the connection to the illustrated French song-book on their site.

From it - I was able to figure out the "plus botton" to increase size and then the arrow that "flipped pages" while keeping it large. Nice original explanations of the movements that go with them.

Wonderful illustrations.

Sincerely,
Gargoyle

It's always fun when an old thread is drug up by the trolls. The links all work here, too! Good stuff! I wonder if Arnold Lobel knew the Froggy book when he drew Frog and Toad.
