Wednesday, March 26, 2008 A new way to look at Picture Books

By René Colato Laínez

I want to share with all the amigos of la bloga a great site to read picture books on line. Visit and you will find many books to read just by clicking your mouse. It was great to find two books by Yuyi Morales JUST A MINUTE and LITTLE NIGHT. There is a section for Hispanic American books. The selection is short but lookybook is looking for more picture books to add to their lists. Publishers please send your books to to have more selection on the Hispanic American section. There will be cool to add a section for bilingual books.

This is what lookybook says:

Picture books are for looking at- so we’ve made it possible to view entire books from cover to back, in all their splendor.

We’ll never replace an actual book in your hands, but we hope to show you new books and help you make informed choices for you and your kids.

Every book can be reviewed, rated, shared, put on your bookshelf, and purchased by the regular reviews and ratings of our viewers.

And now una probadita, a little taste. Click and read Just a Minute written and illustrated by Yuyi Morales and Fiesta Fiasco by Ann Whitford Paul. Illustrated by Ethan Long.

Click on the eyeballs to view a larger version on lookybook.
