    I loved this book.  As a grandmother of five I struggle to choos

    I loved this book.  As a grandmother of five I struggle to choose the right gift for the kids.  I want my
     grandchildren to be comfortable with technology while learning and having fun at the same time.  The Ipad is
    the perfect tool for this to happen.  But, picking the right app has been a challenge.  This book solves that
    challenge.  The book is organized and succinct.  The table of contents is your first stop, look for the age of the
     a child or a subject in which the child has an interest; then scan the reviews to make the best choice for your
    child.  I appreciate the helpful tips and cautions mentioned in the book.  I hope the author updates this book yearly.
