Book enthusiasts and history buffs will now be able to read 100 ultra-rare children’s books that are over 100 years old. The collection of British and American titles has been digitized and is now available for freeonline thanks to the Library of Congress. The effort is in honor of the 100th anniversary of Children’s Book Week, which was launched in 1919, when there weren’t many kids’ books published because printing color illustrations was more expensive than printing in black and white.
“These selections and related materials are presented by a record of the past,” the Library of Congress website explains. “They are historical documents which reflect the attitudes, perspectives and beliefs of different times.”
