As I was prowling the Internet this morning for new resources to write about I came across Miami University’s Children’s Picture Book Database. It’s an excellent resource for public/school librarians, as well as anyone interested in locating some fine literature for the youngsters in their life!
Maintained by Valerie A. Ubbes, this freely accessible database offers abstracts for 5000+ children’s books! You can search by a list of alphabetical keywords, academic discipline, or Boolean combination search. The site was last updated in 2010, and I’m hopeful that it will continue to be added to in the future!
