Top Ten Most Original iPad Books

| April 5, 2011 | 0 Comments

The category of “Originality” is one that will appear and be sortable on the Digital-Storytime site by next month. In the meantime, I thought I’d put together my top 10 list of truly original, ground-breaking iPad Children’s Books. These are books that have taken the medium of the iPad and really shaken up our notions of what a children’s book can do.

Of our first 150 reviews, these are my top picks for the most original book apps:

1. The Three Little Pigs – Nosy Crow Interactive Storybook







2. The Fine Musician








3. The Strange & Wonderful World of Ants






4. Nursery Rhymes with StoryTime







5. Treasure Kai and The Lost Gold of Shark Island






6. Three Little Pigs and the Secrets of a Popup Book







7. The Penelope Rose HD






8. Bartleby’s Book of Buttons Vol. 1: The Far Away Island






9. The Little Mermaid by Auryn







10. The Spellinguists






And a special mention goes to the following:

1. Food Fight – An Interactive Book by Glenn Melenhorst

2. Loris and the runaway ball






3. Icarus Swinebuckle







And what are the most original iPad books on your list?
