And, what do ya know? Before the year is out, I've stumbled upon a few other virtual gems, thanks to TIME Magazine's reviews of the 50 best websites of the year. Like Lookybook: flip through the pages of hundreds of picture books. Rate them, review them, and purchase them. It's searchable and browsable: by subject/genre, author/illustrator, or new.
There's pretty decent variety. Here's a sampling of what I'll be enjoying: My Friend Rabbit by Eric Rohmann, First the Egg by Laura Vaccaro Seeger, Bad Kitty by Nick Bruel, Ping Pong Pig by Caroline Jayne Church, as well as scoping out the selections from authors/illustrators such as: Jane Cabrera, Gail Gibbons, Eric Kimmel, Harriet Ziefert, Trina Schart Hyman, Janet Stevens, and many more.
