Best Children’s Books for the iPad


After trying out many eBooks on the iPad, 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.
