Ruckus Media Group- Digital Books For Kids

Recently I've had the pleasure of reviewing some fantastic digital books for kids. I know, it's a little shocking as I'm such a huge fan of reading from a physical book vs an ebook or digital book. Part of my prejudice had to do with my feeling digital books took away from the time I value reading with my kids, BUT I'm since realized that digital books don't take away from that. In fact, I'm become a fan of digital books, as instead of having my kids play games while waiting in line somewhere or watching a movie in the car, my kids are having a story read to them. Not only that, my toddler loves to grab our iPad and pull up a digital story on it.

Ruckus Media Group has a huge line of classic digital book, narrated from some very talented actors from Robin Williams, Meryl Streep, and BB King just to name a few. I've enjoyed The Velveteen Rabbit, The Night Before Christmas (both told by Meryl Streep) and Pecos Bill (told by Robin Williams), which have all earned 5 stars from me. These stories are brought to life in a manner that even capture my attention.

If you're looking to expand your digital book collection, I highly recommend visiting Ruckus Media. Their books are fantastic, their prices are hard to beat and they have something for kids of all ages. Plus, who doesn't love seeing a beloved childhood book brought to life.
I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
