Library of Congress Rare Books & Special Collections - Children's Literature

In this collection you'll find beautiful full scans of some of most delightful children's book of the past century. Here's a few samples from the collection...

The Circus Procession. N.Y. [i.e. New York]: McLoughlin Bro's., c1888.

The Twelve Magic Changelings / By M.A. Glen. New York: Frederick A. Stokes Co., c1907.

These books and images are so much fun... and I'll bet you could figure out some creative ways to make a few new products with them.  I've found several images that I'm planning to use for my new "Multiple Stream Of Income - Public Domain Images".

    As the grandmother of 3 little girls, this is way beyond cool.

    Thank you for this information. I can’t wait to make some childrens books for them and possibly to sell also.

    Plus, my mind is spinning at the possibilities of the pictures.

    I may have to unsubscribe to your newsletter just to stop the chatter in my head. ;)

    No I couldn’t do that because I’d just check your website everyday. :) LOL
