Abstract: The recent rise of the Apple iPad and other tablet computers presents new opportunities to deliver children’s literature to young students. The combination of touch-based control, portability, screen-size, and low-priced apps is compelling, and the impact on reading education will likely be revolutionary. By providing features such as computerized narration, embedded dictionaries, instant translations, and a multitude of engaging multimedia activities that traditional paper-based books simply cannot deliver, tablet devices like the iPad and its iOS applications offer unique capabilities that demand consideration from all teachers of young readers.
