Online Public Domain Children's Literature

The Baldwin Project seeks to
make available online a comprehensive collection of resources for
parents and teachers of children. Our focus, initially, is on
literature for children that is in the public domain in the United
States. This includes all works first published before 1923.”


Many of the texts include illustrations from the original book, such as Celtic Fairy Tales (1892) and The Children of Odin (1920) (but alas not The Boy's Cuchulain, which had fabulous illustrations).

    Have you ever seen the ICDL (International Children's Digital Library)? It's an English-language interface, but offers books in a range of other languages, too.

    I did see it way back in the mists of time (even blogged about it apparently!) but had totally forgotten about it so thanks for the reminder.
    I love how they let you search by the colour of covers. You design an OPAC that does that and you're a millionaire! šŸ˜‰
