Best Children’s Books Apps

Books Apps

After trying out many book apps, I’m convinced that eBooks count as valid reading material. At the moment, there are many great books for young children but the selection dwindles for the tweens and teenagers. But I’m sure that will change soon as more people adopt the technology.

Also, I’ve read about eye strain, a concern of mine, and found that is it’s not so much about the screen as about giving your eyes a break – no matter what screen you’re using, Kindle, Nook, iPad, or computer. Just be aware of that as you read stories on any device.
