Barnes & Noble recently announced NOOK kids, a platform offering picture books and chapter books in an enhanced digital format. The app will debut on NOOKcolor, the new tablet that's slated to ship late next week.
The online demo shows Bruce Degen's Jamberry and P.D. Eastman's Go, Dog. Go! Users select "read by myself" or "read to me," and the illustrations are enhanced with animation and interactive games. The growing collection of titles for NOOK kids currently numbers close to 12,000. The NOOKcolor retails for $249.
