Book Apps

I got an email from Karen Robertson, and Neil Maxwell-Keys about how to create a book app. As interested as I am in creating a book app, I am unwilling to jump right in without some research. Once I create a book app I don't want to create the same book app but in a different platform. One and done. There is a lot of work to be done in just one page of a regular book. Lots more in a book app. No story ever written consisted of one page. Words are to be written, illustrations are to be drawn and then perfected. In a book app your illustrations come to life. Things move and make sounds. I've seen some where there are games implemented in the story as well. I'm currently looking into that. Even if my story has none, I would always like the option if I wanted to use it in my story. I think it's a brilliant idea to keep the children engaged in what their reading. The best book I could see coming out of these apps are the learning ones. Why not have fun when your learning?

Here are some sites to look into if you are interested in creating a book app yourself.
