The International Children’s Digital Library (ICDL) Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting cultural understanding and tolerance by presenting the best of children’s literature to children throughout the world. By making our extensive collection of books available online, we aspire to reach children, parents and educators who have limited access to libraries. By sharing life’s wonders through stories, we encourage young minds to discover the world and appreciate the diversity of its people and their ways of life. The focus of the collection is on materials that help children to understand the world around them and the global society in which they live. It is hoped that through a greater understanding of one another we can increase tolerance and acceptance of others.
