The World Through Picture Books catalogue, 2nd editionWe are very happy to announce the publication of the expanded second edition of The World through Picture Books, enriched with sixteen new annotated country selections and with ideas on how to use them at the library. This new, illustrated edition features fifty-two country lists of picture books recommended by librarians. All books are described in the language of publication and in English and are available for purchase.

This new edition proves even more the very enthusiastic, skilled participation of librarians and the great success of this international programme led by IFLA Children’s and Young Adults section with support from partners IFLA Literacy and Reading section and IBBY (International Board on Books for Young People). Also, thanks to publishers’ generosity, the complete collection of the featured picture books can be borrowed from the National Libraries of Japan and France, by any library without charge except shipping and insurance costs.

You can download the catalogue in PDF-format or you can order a printed copy from IFLA Headquarters (35 € per copy, plus 16 € for postage and handling charges + VAT, if applicable).
