Last December, we published Family Time with Apps, a free guide designed to help parents better understand the variety of ways that apps can support children’s healthy development and family learning, communication, and connection. The iBook aims to show parents how to find the best apps that fit your child’s needs, provide tips on how (and why!) to use apps together, and highlight even more resources that will make the process of selecting apps less overwhelming, and more fun.
An important part of the Joan Ganz Cooney Center’s mission is to make sure research-based information is made available to the largest possible audience. When we released Family Time with Apps, we received some great feedback, but also many inquiries from librarians and community organizers who wondered if there was a Spanish-language version available. We’re very pleased to announce that Apps en Familia is available now! The book is now available through Apple’s iBook Store for those with access to the iBooks app on a desktop, iPad, or iPhone with the latest iOS, or as a PDF in English or Spanish.
