A lot of people seem unaware that you can read eBooks on your computer, phone, tablet or iPad. You do not need to own a Kindle or Kobo. There are free apps you can download. It is really very easy to do.
Here are some useful links:
Amazon Reading Apps
Kobo Reading Apps
For those with an iPad the app Interactive Touch Books offers a lovely selection of interactive stories for children, featuring animations, sound effects and optional narration. The books here offer great value at only $0.99 -$1.99 each.
I love traditional print books but eBooks have a lot to offer too, especially for young children. Here are some of the reasons to start your eBook collection.
• eBooks are usually much cheaper to purchase than print books
• Interactive eBooks are available, offering a different reading experience for children
• Tablets/computers can be loaded with numerous different books for your child to read on holiday. (No need to take a box of books on long car journeys).
If you are tempted to check out the eBook option then you might like to try My Crazy Purple Pen, which I have made available for FREE from Saturday 5th July until Wednesday 9th July.
If you have an iPad you may also like to check out my latest interactive touch book, Birthday Cake Disaster, which has recently been selected as a featured book.
Please let me know how you get on!
