Setting up the Ipad

This morning I finally got around to setting up an iPad for Henry.  It’s an old one with iOS 5 (no child lock feature) so not sure how well it will work, but I did transfer our Little Pim DVDs to it (using handbrake) and download and test out a few apps.  PlayTales has a bunch of ebooks to download in Spanish that are different from the selection of real books at Idlewild.  The downside is that each costs a few dollars to download, so I’m going to try out some of the free ones first.  First, DeCuentos, which has videos of adults reading or demonstrating stories in Spanish (and some in English) that you can download and “favorite” to make them quickly and easily accessible.  Also, Scholastic Storia, which comes with five free books (in English) and includes ‘read to me’ and interactive question options.  Will see how it goes over with the 2 year old!
