Here's my question:  Why is it that Bookshare has only a small number of books at this level?

Hi Vicki,

Bookshare is definitely looking at expanding our selection of picture books.  Unfortunately for a very long time young picture books were definitely a weakness within our own process for adding books.  When we manually convert books ourselves it's generally impossible for us to retain the images for them, which has a huge impact on these kinds of picture books.

We're working on this from two fronts, first we've focussed on increasing our publisher partners who directly supply us with very high quality books including their images.  And second we're working through our internal processes for adding books, and have begun retaining images when we can.  For instance we very recently added the top 100 picture books: https://www.bookshare.org/browse/collection/50/Top
