3D Bookshelf: Classic Literature Collection
A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this app.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this app has no objectionable content, but most of the books require a reading level of at least the fifth grade. The kid-friendliest tomes in the collection so far are Little Women, Grimm's Fairy Tales, and Tom Sawyer. The rest are on the level of A Tale of Two Cities.

Is it any good?
The visuals and sound effects in this unusual ebook app are gimmicky but fun. Each of the 20-plus classics is a 3D object. Use a finger to turn pages at your own rate with appropriate paper-rustling sounds. Examine books in full rotational 3D on a reading desk. The selection of literature itself is quite good, if not very kid oriented.
