The Future of Children’s Literature?

By Readingintheborderlands

I found this link posted on the World of Words facebook page. It describes a new e-book for children designed for the i-Pad. The book sounds good–but I’m more interested in the broader implications of what this means for children’s book publishing and reading in and out of schools. How quickly will children’s literature move to a digital format? Will children’s books be published in both a digital, interactive format and a traditional format? How quickly will schools adopt e-books for kids? What reading knowledge do children need for these new formats? How will we teach those skills and strategies and how will our work as literacy educators change in order to adapt to e-books?
