eBooks - the next generation!

ebooks - love 'em or hate 'em, they're here to stay. And as they become entrenched in our culture, they move into our schools. If you're familiar with children's ebooks, you'll know that they have a long way to go before we'll be in any way convinced that they're worth the trouble. Chapter books are a breeze, but picture books and graphic-heavy information texts just don't work right in the current ebook format.

Here's one company's solution, and it is brilliant! Enjoy!


  1. I can see the potential for ebooks, but I'm still a paper book kind of person.
    Maybe it just means I'm getting old :D
    Interesting video. Thanks for sharing!

    1. In my humble opinion, ebooks will never replace picture books - there is just something about holding and sharing a picture book that cannot be replaced by an iPad or a Kindle! But ebooks do have their place, and if they all end up working as smoothly as the one in the video, I'm sure we'll all grow to love them too!
