The Apple Version of the e-book is my best selling version. Many parents use the I-Pad to teach their kids, or to entertain them. It is nothing for a mom or dad to download a quick $.99 book that has some cool looking cover art and hand the the device over.
Just something for authors looking at the children's market to think about.
You got a point, @indmoss. Once upon a time (five years ago), e-books for children came on shiny CD-ROMs that cost $40, plus a few dollars for sales tax. Today’s children’s e-books cost just that sales tax. All you need is a $500 iPad. IPad has proven an intuitive, interactive learning tool for children.
