September Highlight from MassCue's On CUE Online: ICDL for Elementary
ICDL’s goal is “to build a collection of books that represents outstanding historical and contemporary books from throughout the world.” This website’s collection of children’s books from around the world is available to read immediately online. The free website can be used for many purposes. For example, teachers can share with students what a book published in another country looks like. Teachers can connect an ESL student to books in his or her home language. Finally, teachers can share the site with parents as a way to have students explore books at home on an interactive and kid-friendly platform. Top access a host of multicultural books, a user can simply hover over “Read Books” and click on “Simple Search,” “Books by Country,” or any other categories of interest.
