iBooks in Storytime

I was frustrated trying to find Dan Yaccarino’s Five Little Pumpkins in the App store.  I love the board book and I did it as a rhyme frequently in my Book Babies program. Our Music Together teacher Tricia also does it around October when things get a little spooky. Five Little Pumpkins is not in the app store because it’s not an app; it’s an iBook. What confused me was that’s it’s only $5.99, while other iBooks are usually closer to $11.99.  I got permission to download a few iBooks and I now have a small collection:

Brown Bear Brown Bear
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom
Duck and Goose
Five Little Pumpkins
Pete the Cat

I foresee that these might be easier to whip out during a storytime, but I’ll have to give it a go and report back.
