Library of Congress Makes Rare Children's Books Available Online
Beloved classics and little-known treasures more than a century old have now been digitized.
The Library says the 100 children's books selected from its General and Rare Book Collections, and include classic works that are still read by children today, and lesser-known treasures drawn from the Library's extensive collection of historically significant children's books.
The Library says the collection includes books designed to help young children learn to read, as well as books for more advanced young readers, covering everything from mathematics, history, natural science and more. And of course, there are also beloved fairy tales, mythology and other works of fiction to show that reading is fun. Titles range from "Humpty Dumpty" to "The Life of George Washington" to "The Arabian Nights" --and everything in between!
All of the books selected were published in the United States and England before 1924, and are no longer under copyright. This means you read, share, and reuse the treasured titles however you'd like.
