Paul Biba at TeleRead alerts us to something coming soon from Kirkus Reviews
Maintaining its position as the first review resource to bring a critical eye to children’s book apps as a distinct new category, Kirkus Reviews today announced the creation of a discovery engine devoted exclusively to this burgeoning area of publishing and app development. Available in early March, it will be found at http://www.kirkusreviews.com/childrens-book-apps/.
Distinguished from digital illustrated books by their interactive elements, more than 400 children’s books stormed into the app world during the second half of 2010. A call to curate kid’s storybook apps has been made over the past month by parents, educators, librarians and publishers. Last month, Kirkus announced the first Top Ten list for this category.
