Children’s Picture Books is a web site which lists and describes great picture books for children of all ages, some of which can beautifully introduce concepts in math, science, and other subjects. There are detailed and informative reviews for both old favorites and newly published books listed in the categories of General Interest, Math, Science, Social Studies, Music & Art, Holiday, Religious, Fairy & Folk Tales, Story Collections & Read Aloud, and Children’s Audio. The reviews are fun and descriptive, such as this one for Can You Count to a Googol?, by Robert E. Wells (Albert Whitman and Company):
