Two Children's Literature Resources

The International Children's Digital Library : According to blogger Jessica Palmer, "The mission of the Children's Digital Library is to give children of immigrants all over the world access to children's books in their native tongue. But it's not really surprising that English books constitute the majority of the collection, or that older (and thus out-of-copyright) books predominate. It may be unintentional, but it makes the Children's Digital Library a bonanza for those of us who miss old cloth-bound children's books like the Oz series."

Evidently the digital books include the original illustrations as well. 

The Reading Spot, is an Australian online collection of children's literature. Unfortunately, the site is not up right now. I will provide a link when it works again.
