It’s 5 o’clock somewhere.
It also means the weekend is here and time for some Saturday /Sunday R&R (readin and restin)..AND..it’s time for our App-y Hour Book Apps for Kids Pick of the Week.
.Jump Into A Book has been coming across many, many delightful children’s book apps and e-books lately so we’d like to start sharing those with our readers for a
Friday feature. We think reading apps and e-books are like a bridge for families to learn how to balance real books and e books and we firmly believe it is still completely possible to “jump into the pages” of a book, even when there’s no physical book present!
The important part is in the READING and creating balance when we choose to use technology in our lives. Another important thing before we dive into Appy-Hour is that you still take the time to sit down with your child and read together, whether it’s a book, an app, or a read aloud option. When children connect with an adult while doing something enjoyable, the habit sticks.
