Check out the Children's Library here:


There are several books in Arabic, Farsi, and other languages.  The
top rated Arabic books are short, well illustrated, and aimed at young
children so they might be good choices in DJVU format.  Some

Tagalog -- Pag-Aalsa Sa Cavite; Bakit Binitay Sina Padre Gomez, Burgos
At Zamora? http://www.archive.org/details/vllpgls

Arabic -- Ras Al-Afa http://www.archive.org/details/mrmrslf

Farsi -- Raha Kih Mamanad http://www.archive.org/details/shjrhkh

French -- L'Arche de N http://www.archive.org/details/larcheden00guig

Chinese -- Kao Ai Ti Che Chih http://www.archive.org/details/ktchchh

Chinese -- Ku Kung Wen Wu Pao Tsang Hsu Pien

Hope this helps.

>> Sugar on a Stick v2 Blueberry will be launched at the Netbook World

>> Sebastian and other members of the SoaS team are working hard on
>> finalizing the master this weekend.
>> In this holiday season with $250 Kindles and $299 Nooks and $$$
>> eBooks, we want to talk about Sugar's great eBook tools as well as
>> open access eBooks - that eBooks shouldn't be only pricey DRM'd
>> downloads for pricey gadgets.
>> To do this, we want to "populate" Blueberry's Journal with a small
>> number of eBooks. Small, so the Journal is not overstuffed; eBooks
>> there will help new Sugar users to understand the Journal.
>> We do feel though that it is important that of the handful of eBooks,
>> not all should be in English. We won't have room for every language
>> (that needs to wait for a later version of Sugar or SoaS which could
>> have filter logic by language). But an eBook in half a dozen
>> languages, with instructions for parents and teachers where to find
>> others, will effectively demonstrate Sugar's potential as an eBook
>> reader solution. Books written in the native language will be
>> preferable to translations of books originally written in English -
>> we'd like to show that Sugar content can be localized and not merely
>> translated.
>> Please suggest eBooks! ideally, an illustrated eBook in EPUB format
>> (although we may be able to convert from other formats by hand since
>> there will only be a few). Send links!
>> If it's possible before Sunday, it would be fabulous if we could
>> include an eBook created by children in the classroom! Even a
>> collection of scans could be fairly easily "bound" into an eBook file.
>> Thanks for your help!
