American Libraries told me recently that Ingram was teaming up with Lerner to make interactive children’s books through iPage.  I thought “Yay! Ingram is great! This must be a wonderful product!”

Bah. How disappointing. I got a free trial and took at look at this mostly non-fiction that is aimed at “struggling readers.”  The interface is clunky, the animations shoddy, the interactivity minimal and the text dull. Even their TRAILER is boring (below).  Come on, folks.  We can do better than THAT!
