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."

In honor of the Beijing Olympics our August Lookybook pick is “Good Morning, China” by Hu Yong Yi. Use the Olympics as an opportunity to share this book with your children and enjoy the beautiful illustrations while they learn about the morning happenings in a Chinese park.

To view a larger copy of the book, click the orange “eyes” in the upper right-hand corner.
