If you are looking online for some bedtime reading for your child, why not check out the Children’s books online at http://www.childrensbooksonline.org
They say it is the largest collection of illustrated antique books online. The library was created by the Rosetta Project.
The only caveat is that the stories are predominantly Western. Makes sense, doesn’t it, considering that a lot of books available to us, including old fairytales, were published in Western Europe and North America.
For local flavour, Struik Publishers has a nice collection of books that are available for purchasing online (http://www.struik.co.za/book.author.action?id=3185)
I know a number of local publishers also have online shops, so in due course I’ll post their links too.
