Enter An Archive Of 6,000 Historical Children's Books

We can learn much about how a historical period viewed the abilities of its children by studying its children's literature. And we can do so by surveying the thousands of mid- to late 19th century titles at the University of Florida's Baldwin Library of Historical Children's Literature.

Their digitized collection currently holds over 6,000 books free to read online from cover to cover, allowing you to get a sense of what adults wanted children to know and believe. You can search the collection on language, publisher, topic, geographic area and genre.
