Mamas are always on the lookout for great books for their kids. It's not always easy to know which books your kids will like...especially if you have limited time browsing at the library or bookstore.

Thanks to Lookybook.com, you can now view more than 250 children's books online, cover to cover, from the comfort of your home. If you like a book you see on their website just click "Buy it" and they will send you directly to a store. You can also read reviews from other moms and save books in your own "bookshelf."

Our April pick is “Bugs! Bugs! Bugs!” by Bob Barner.

“My Dad was the type of person that when faced with a spider-web was more likely to stop and marvel at the wonder of nature rather than run in retreat. Now that I have kids, I try to teach them about the wonders of the natural world – including bugs. The illustrations in this book are beautiful and the “actual size” and “bug-o-meter” pages add a fun and educational end to the story.”

-Becky in Utah
