Book Apps

Reading "to" and reading "with" our children is an important area of cognitive development which can be overlooked in all the fuss of homework and schoolwork. Thanks to iPad, children can begin their journey into 'reading books' the way books will be read in the future. Let's face it, they'll be reading on screens for the rest of their life. Good habits start early. And besides, "let's save the trees!"

Each of these iPad Apps are high quality and are Apps we recommend. Our most recent additions are listed first.
