Included is an overview of children’s emergent and early reading behaviors, the types of text that support these behaviors, and examples of how digital texts could influence beginning reading instruction. A framework for examining eBooks is suggested and several apps and resources will be described.

Teacher modifications made a difference in two out of four of the children’s preferences.
