Millions of kids already have access to Apple iPads - and, as schools increasingly bring iPads into the classroom, even more will. Now, for the first time, there's a book just for them: My iPad for Kids. Fun, easy-to-read, and full of color pictures, it covers everything kids want and need to know about the iPad. About.com iPad expert Sam Costello shows kids (and their parents) how to use some of the iPad's most exciting features, including Safari web browsing, texting, chatting, music, video, the camera, and gaming. He also presents dozens of great ideas for using iPad to do better in school - including complete chapters on using iPad in the 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th grades. Costello even shows kids how to troubleshoot simple problems and keep their iPads working reliably.
