Contest Details: From February 14 to February 18, Kirkus Reviews will post three images per day on our Facebook page (random times), each a collage of five children’s book apps for iPad. (Please note: Due to technical difficulties, the way to claim an app has changed from tagging a photo to commenting on a photo.) Contestants must leave a comment with nothing more than the title of one of the book apps in the photo (for example "Green Eggs and Ham" or "The Three Little Pigs.") The first person who names a particular app title will win it. Comments that list more than one title will be disqualified. 

Note: To be able to comment on a photo posted on our Facebook page, you must first “like” the page.

After all apps have been awarded, winners will be entered in a random drawing to win a 16GB Apple iPad!
