iPads in Education – Enhancing student learning by Lynda Cutting

Story Books

The iPad is an amazing vehicle for engaging young children in reading, enabling books to truly come alive. Books can become interactive, animated with a variety of options such as read to yourself, be read to or even sometimes record their own reading of the book. But not all the books available are worthwhile. Sometimes the “extra stuff” actually takes away from, rather than enhances reading.

Here are a few GREAT books where reading is still the focus……..but with a bit of magic!

Pop Out Peter

 An exquisite version of Peter Rabbit with movable tabs, just like the old fashion moving books.
