The International Children’s Digital Library website is designed for use by children, but that is no reason not to explore these excellent examples of illustration and design. The library contains children’s books from around the world and in dozens of languages. You can search by illustrator, author, subject, or even browse by book jacket color. The initial book page shows you the entire text layout so you can select only illustrated pages to view larger, if you choose.

The Greenfield Library has an extensive collection of children’s books in support of the major in illustration. Browse 741.641 in the Open Stacks or search for the subject illustrated children’s books or picture books for children. You’ll be inspired to pick up your pencils and brushes and create!
