Has anyone created an interactive ebook for kids?  I am exploring the idea of this.  

A few questions:

What software did you use?

What did you do about illustrations (if you are not an artist)?

Thanks!

Funny... I asked myself the very same question this morning.  I saw an article in the June edtion of The Writer maganize, titled: "How I published an Interactive Children's Story", by Stacey Williams-Ng.  The article touched on several points, including illustrations. However, Stacey Williams-Ng is a beautiful illustrator.

One notation she made about illustrations for interactive e-stories was that if you want a portion of the picture to move independantly, it has to be drawn indepdently... i.e.. if your main character is going to dance in the living room, then the living room and the main character have to be separate drawings/paintings.

Stacey reference softwares, story development, and pre-release testing of the application...just enough to wet our collective whistles.

While I cannot find a link to a digital copy of the article, Stacey has a website and it may be possible to pick up a few tidbits though it. The link to her site is:  http://www.staceywilliamsng.com/

I hope other comments are offered, that provide far greater help than I have been able to offer! 

Thanks for posing the question!

 

I have that issue of Writer.  I just hadn't read it yet!  I will be now, though. :)

Thanks!
