  1. Please add the International Children's Digital Library http://en.childrenslibrary.org/ (sponsored by University of Maryland) as a great FREE online resource with 4,000+ kids' books in 61 languages (many available in multiple languages).

    The authors & illustrators allow free access so that more children can read/ be read to in their home languages.

    ICDL is always looking for volunteer translators so that more books can be presented in multiple languages.

    This is also wonderful for older students reading to younger siblings in home language and for those learning languages other than English. Stunning illustrations are great as writing prompts and story starters.
