1,800 + Free books for Kids
« on: August 16, 2018, 12:34:18 PM »
The digital archive at UCLA has over 1,800 children's books you can download
or read online, for free.
 
The collection has classics like Cinderella and The Wizard of Oz, along
with poetry, education and fiction.
 
You can read them online or download them in a wide variety of formats
including EPUB, Kindle, PDF and more.
 
The books were published between 1728 to 1999, so not all can be called vintage
Newer books are in the minority.

Enjoy browsing through the wood cut type, prints and illustrations in this
nicely curated selection of children's books.

The books can be sorted by title, date published, and creator.
You can search using topics and subjects, by year, by collection or by creator.

The default display is thumbnails, or you can view them as a list.
 
A nice collection if you want to read older editions of books or enjoy looking
at vintage illustrations.

Illustrations range from wood cut type to printed materials,in color and black and white.
All the books I viewed had readable text, though some were a bit dark.
I particularly liked the illustrations.

 
The books are printable in PDF format, though the pages will vary in size
