Lookybook lets you browse full versions of children's picture books, like The Other Side by Hungarian-born illustrator Istvan Banyai, or Alphabeasts by Wallace Edwards.

Great site! Interesting that publishers will allow full content for these books, which the generally don't for current adult books on GoogleBooks. We need Lookybook-for-grownups.

Whoa, this is awesome! My twins always want to watch YouTube videos of Sesame Street and TMBG, but maybe they'll like books on the computer too.

It only lets you see the first X pages... it's not much different from Amazon's "Look Inside" feature, is it?

You can even create a bookshelf?! What's the catch here....

After the first few pages of some books, there is a prompt to look at the book in its entirety (which will start you over at the book's beginning), or to move on. However, many titles allow you to browse straight through.
