A shiny new gadget entered our house at the holidays - an iPad. It was an unexpected gift, so I wasn't sure where to even start looking for ebooks or other apps that might suit our 2 yr. old (who LOVES any gadget, of course!).
I found 'A Present for Milo' through Joy Chu's amazing Got Story Countdown blog. She highlighted this wonderful interactive app - and I highly recommend reading every post about it.
Mike Austin wrote and illustrated this gorgeous interactive book. His style is so rich, the story is simple enough that all the interactive parts (and there are A LOT) make sense and don't crowd the storytelling aspect. The reading, by the author, is natural and lively. We've played this over and over - entertaining both of us.
I'll be holding all future apps up to this standard - and I'm not sure how many will hit the mark.
