MeeGenius is like an iBooks or Kindle for children's books. The app is free and starts the child's bookshelf with a fantastic six free books: The Three Little Pigs, Jemima Puddleduck, The Lion and the Mouse, The Magpie's Nest, The Boy Who Cried Wolf and The Little Red Hen.

Once downloaded, the child simply presses on the book that they want to read. The additional books cost from 99 cents to a far-too-expensive $9.99, with most around $1.99. A free sample can be downloaded for each before purchase. The bookstore has sections for featured books, best sellers. award winners and collections.You can also just keep the basic app and six free books. (Did I mention there are six free books?)
The stories are read aloud and each word is highlighted as it is read, one of my favorite features and a really nice touch for a free app. This is not a high-resolution, everything-does-something-when-you-press-it situation, but if you're looking for old school book-reading goodness, MeeGenius is a must-try even if you don't want to buy any of the additional books.
