Interactive book suggestions?- I’ve just got an ipad and would love to have some interactive ebooks to help our daughter start to read. I’ve seen a few MoM’s recommend interactive ebooks but I am not sure where to find them. My daughter is 1.5 years old. Any suggestions on titles and where to find them would be most welcome.

  • When my little one went to school they revealed that out of the 5 classes over 25 children couldn’t turn a page :( however there is such a concentration on technology at school now I think it’s important to have a mixture of both…. We love reading eggs.. Not free but worth it.. Maybe a little old for her yet though :)


  • At 1.5 they will respond better to books. Then to an Ipad. An Ipad is singular and therefore does not encourage the time you spend together. A book is physical and read together. Also teaching then respect for books is always a positive thing. We have an Ipad for our kids. However we have lots of kids books which the kids and I prefer to read

  • At 1.5 she doesn’t need an Ipad for reading, she needs books to interact with not a screen. Trust me it helps later on when they are older. Use the Ipad for other things. This isn’t a put down either, its just a suggestion from experience. Enjoy this age, its wonderful!!



  • Any apps, type something like toddler flash cards or toddler apps. They are heaps of they and Yes…they are help a lot to teach they how to reconise numbers, letters, colours, shapes, songs, etc.
