I resisted getting an iPad for quite some time, but finally caved with the iPad 3. And since then, my world has opened up under my fingertips. The kids are too old for interactive reading apps, so they haven't ventured much past their slew of kid-oriented games. Now there is an interactive app that is seriously for any age from 0 to 99 (or older!). Barefoot World Atlas from Barefoot Books and Touch Press is amazingly rich and full of information that is easy and fun to find.
Dova has a report due on Siberian Tigers for school, so she immediately went to look it up on the World Atlas. Within seconds, she found the entry. Not only can you press the audio button to have the entry read to you, you can click on the photo icon at the bottom to view a high res photograph.
Wow, this image really pops on the iPad 3 display! The World Atlas even has recent events. This tsunami tidal wave is animated across the screen.
Check out the beautifully illustrated colors of the Middle East! There are even space craft to learn about.
No trip around the world is complete without a visit to one of my bucket list destinations, the Tah Majal. Whenever you scroll to a new area, the music of the region also comes on.
I will see you someday, my beautiful!!

I've had so much fun spinning the world and virtual globe trotting. Where would you like to travel too?
Disclaimer: Barefoot Books gave me the World Atlas app to review. No other compensation was received and the glowing recommendations are strictly my own (and Dova's) opinions.
