LOTE4Kids is our new online database of digital books in World Languages.  It allows children and families to enjoy the magic of books in LOTE (Languages Other Than English). Each book also comes with English translations to help with language learning and development.

LOTE4Kids has over 3000+ digital picture books in 65+ languages, including English and American Sign Language.  New books and languages are released each month.
