I have a special weekend request for help with a unique book. It is basically a 
book about books -- children's early reader books.

Here's the deal. Senior Bookshare staff will be in DC reporting to the 
Department of Education about all that we do. This book, Adventures, comes 
right at the top  of the alphabetical lists of books with images being 
described.  It would be great to have a good start on it for their "Show and 
Tell."

Adventures looks like it will just be a fun book to image describe. Mostly it 
is a catalog of children's books with interesting book covers to describe. As 
you go deeper you will find that entire children's books reproduced inside to 
be described! You could start at the beginning and work through sequentially. 
Or you could jump to a favorite story and describe the images for that 
particular book.

In total there are 351 images to describe. That's plenty of room for several 
people to be working at once.

Here is how to find the book. Of course, you will be asked to register or sign 
in before you can get to it. Then choose the filter "Description Needed" in the 
dropdown list found in the yellow box at the upper left hand corner of the 
image description tool:

Enjoy!
