IPad Apps for Kids for Dummies 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
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.
