UPDATE: Unfortunately, Lookybook is no more. But you can still page through the book by clicking here.
Exciting news—i get around is now on a cool site called Lookybook, where you can actually page through a wide selection of children's picture books (try it out above—just click on a page to turn). The idea for this site comes from graphic designer and illustrator Craig Frazier, who recognized that there are a whole lot of great children's books out there that people never get a chance to look through—unless they are among the few that get a prime spot in a bookstore (or are books people are already aware of and looking for). Lookybook allows you to look through as many picture books as you want, create and share your own library and comments, view those of others, purchase books, and more. (Lookybook was also chosen by TIME magazine as one of the 50 best websites of 2008). Take a look!
