International Children's Digital Library.

I've spent some time checking out the International Children's Digital Library and was wondering what you guys think about it.

Their mission can be read here.  I really like that the ICDL is attempting to fill any gaps or voids of children's literature for those kids who live in regions or countries that differ from their native homeland.  Kids can find books in many different languages on the site and read them immediately.  It also allows parents and caregivers the opportuntity to search for particular stories from their culture that may not be readily available where they currently reside.

Personally, I find it cool that any reader can explore the stories of other cultures and languages simply for the sake of broadening his/her horizons!

If you have a moment, check out the ICDL!
