They'll need a crane to turn the pages

The International Children's Library has scans of over 1,000 children's books in dozens of languages, some dating back over to over 100 years ago. They incorporated a neat search function that allows you to sort by language, cover color, length of book, target age, etc.

Not quite as diverse of a collection, but here are even more free children's online storybooks.

Last month, Neatorama posted about what claims to be the biggest book in the world, the Codex Gigas, also known as the Devil's Bible due to a large illustration of the devil on the inside. Other contenders for the title are:

A book on Bhutan, a small country between India and China

The canons of Theravada Buddhism written on 730 large marble tablets in Mandalay, Myanmar (formerly Burma)
