I am looking for children's ebooks that go beyond traditional books. By that I mean, ebooks that include animation or are interactive in some way that makes it easier for children to navigate the book? If you know of any, could you tell me where I can find them? Thank you.
There are several web sites that offer interactive and animated ebooks. At the LeTopWeb site you'll find a list of more than twenty interactive stories for kids which can be accessed online. Tumblebooks features animated versions of popular children's titles. Companies such as ipicturebooks, Booksjust4me, and Writers Exchange E-Publishing offer an assortment of interactive children's ebooks.
Do a Google search for "interactive children's ebooks" to find more information. Also, be sure to visit the children's department at your local library and bookseller. Ask the librarian or book store manager about interactive children's books on CD.
