Our authors know a fully charged iPad can flip a miserable time into something educational, and they love to write about it:



Emily is a stay-at-home mom with nerves of steel, a heart of gold, and a superhero alter ego.  She has two young children – a son and daughter – who aren’t yet in school and keep her both thoroughly entertained and consistently exhausted.  Emily is always on the lookout for apps that introduce kiddos of all ages to a new and different way of learning while having fun.

Her digressive stream of  musings about life as she knows it can be found on Twitter: @beanandbeatrice

Emily’s posts can be seen here.



Susie holds B.A.s in Psychology and French, is a recovering volunteer and is navigating the teen years with her daughter and son.  When not online or watching reality TV, she enjoys shopping, baking and reading. She has a particular fondness for all things Harry Potter and Tweets, Pins and blogs as RealMuggleMom.



Jess is a stay-at-home mom in charge of keeping alive two girls under the age of 5, two crazy dogs, and two attention-starved cats (the husband can fend for himself). She is a horrible house-keeper, mediocre cook, and irresponsible with the budget. However, she kicks some serious butt when it comes to making play-doh animals, playing freeze dance, and splashing in puddles with her girls. When she’s not breaking up fights over the family’s one and only iPad, she enjoys cake decorating, crafting, and sitting peacefully in dark, quiet rooms.
