iPads and iPhones have become the new babysitters, and more and more children’s books are being made into apps. Do we rejoice in a new way of reading, or do we cringe at children’s diminishing contact with physical books? How can libraries stay on top of the rapid development of apps and support parents with this new technology? Come and take a look at children's apps and their extended family, including ebooks, online books, multimedia tie-ins, and assistive technologies.
