You know I love the For Dummies line! I have an entire shelf on my bookcase dedicated to it. From a mini Wine for Dummies, to a monster-thick Facebook all-in-one For Dummies, and about everything in between.

This time I’m here to talk about iPad Apps For Kids… For Dummies. It’s written by USA Today columnist Jinny Gudmundsen and is the first For Dummies book I’ve seen that’s in full color!

They classify apps by age, skill level, interest and more. Many of the apps featured I know and love, like Piece Me Dinosaurs and Plants v. Zombies. A lot of apps I hadn’t heard of and after reading about them, am ready to download!

iWriteWords is great for Brady to practice writing letters. Pictureka for the iPad looks like a great app to help him with scanning as well.

You can read about these apps and over 200 more in iPad Apps For Kids. But then they take it one step further by telling and showing you how to set up the ipad for kids. talking about parental controls and even which protective cases are best.
