children’s books for iPad

Children’s book publishers have been slow in the move to e-books, as a search of the iBookstore shows. There are a lot more young adult novels available, but even those are limited.

Scholastic is scheduled to release over 2000 titles in e-book formats this winter and many other publishers are spending the $ it takes to convert some of their backlist and frontlist titles for use on e-readers. 

But I doubt very much if print will become obsolete – for children or adults –  at least not in my lifetime.
