Abstract: Books can play an important role in children’s lives. Research has shown that children’s use of books can increase their cognitive, social, and motivational development. In addition, access to narratives from different cultures can offer children opportunities to better understand the world around them as well as who they are in relation to that world. Every day the news media report misunderstandings, intolerance and outright aggression between people from different cultures. Age-old disputes over land, water, religious and cultural practices fuel intolerance. Children absorb the culture and attitudes of their community. Consequently, cycles of intolerance pass from generation to generation. But there is some hope for change: research has shown that sharing personal experiences can change attitudes. Change can happen when children read children’s books from other cultures. International Children’s Digital Library Foundation is the mother organization of the International Children’s Digital Library (ICDL). The mission of the International Children’s Digital Library Foundation is to prepare children for life in an ethnically and culturally diverse world by building the world’s largest online multicultural repository of children’s literature. Present paper attempt to highlights the analysis and evaluation of above mentioned digital library .
