Picture Book Database

Every now an then I have an original, fabulous book idea, and I get really excited. That is, until I do my homework and discover that fifteen other people have had the same original, fabulous idea. Very annoying BUT a problem best discovered before submission. The Children's Picture Book Database at Miami University is one of my research resources. It offers:
  • abstracts of over 5000 children's picture books;
  • search capabilities for over 950 keywords, including topics, concepts, and skills which describe each book;
  • weblinks for keywords so you can integrate your up-to-date content knowledge with our picture book resources
