What do you think of when you hear about eBooks?

All of these best iPad books for kids use digitization to enhance the reading experience, not divert attention from it.
On launch day lastSaturday, Apple sold more than 300,000 iPads—and users downloaded more than onemillion apps and more than 250,000 ebooks from the iBookstore. Parents immediatelystarted snapping up picture book apps from Apple's online store. In fact, children'sstories held six of the top 10 paid iPad book-app sales spots as of press time.Typical prices for children's book apps range anywhere from $2.99 for TheCat in the Hat to $9.99 for Miss Spider's Tea Party.
If you ask me, the iPad 's prowess as an e-book reader lies not in pulp fiction, but in kids' books. Think about it: the latest Grisham novel is just raw text, which any old Kindle can deliver.
Introduction This is a listing of 201 sites that legally offer free ebooks for children to read.
I've just gotten my first iPad in my classroom, and while I've been blogging about their potential for quite a while, I'm truly seeing their amazing possibilities. One area I've found to be especially useful is in create an eBook library. I've talked in the past about writing simple books with your students to help build your library ( Stories in a New York Minute ), what I want to talk about today is creating a digital library. iBooks has the ability to work with ePub files, which means the files can include both images, audio & video embedded in the book.
