iPad changes what my kids will call a “book”

What is a “book”?  What will we call a “book” next year?  What will children who have yet learned to read or picked up a “book” call a “book”?  These examples from Penguin for the iPad show the endless possibilities when touch technology works well with a screen with awesome resolution.  Kids love to touch things and interact.  Since the keynote launch in late January people have been debating will it or won’t it be a success?  The first thing I said after I saw the demonstrations was that it is going to be huge for kids, especially as the price inevitably creeps down.  Think about the endless possibilities for learning and entertainment.  Analysts are projecting Apple to sell between 1M to 5M units the first year….I bet it will be a lot more.
