I have recently discovered a wonderful resource for children’s books online called “We Give Books,” a relatively new digital initiative that allows anyone with internet access the ability to read a large, quality selection of children’s book titles. Check out there video below to find out more.
- Goodnight iPad by Ann Droyd – A witty, modern day parody of a classic picture book.
- Start Saving, Henry by Nancy Carlson – A fun tale that illustrates the benefits of saving vs. spending.
- Dog Wants to Play by Christine McDonnell – Sparse with words, but fun and slightly rhyming. Follows dog on a search for a ‘today’ playmate.
It’s a great way to help me research picture books to grow my writing skills as well as search for new, fun, or even classic titles that the children I work would enjoy.
