Best Kids' Digital Libraries
Most parents want their kids to love reading, and while babies' first experiences with books are best when they get full sensory input (including chewing), it can get tricky later to have the resources and space to maintain a steady book supply. In addition to the physical books at your local branch, there are also apps that contain ebook libraries to fit almost any early reader's level and interests. Many of them also have extra bells and whistles, like talking points for parents, a recording feature, or fun -- and not too distracting -- animations. Whether you go digital or old-school, it's great to encourage kids' reading in any form, so see if any of these apps are a good fit for your family.
