Kirkus Reviews;2/15/2011, Vol. 79 Issue 4, p246
The article offers insights from application developers on the next trend for children's e-books. According to Chris Stevens of Atomic Antelope, the most important feature of a children's e-book is a story that captures the hearts and imagination of both young and old people. Woody Sears of iStory Time says readers can interact with e-books and storytelling through iPad's touch- and gesture-based mechanics. Calvin Wang of Loud Crow Interactive predicts that books of the future will feature an organic interactive combination of images and words.
