Browsing Your B&N Library
After you have installed the NOOK for Kids app and so long as you are connected via wi-fi or 3G, your B&N NOOKbooks library will appear on the shelves (see Figure 3). Anything that is a NOOKkids Read to Me ebook and NOOKbook for kids (that is, ones without the Read to Me feature but “traditional” like Curious George Goes to the Ice Cream Shop). You may also notice NOOKbooks that don’t fit these categories directly: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer or Grimm’s Fairy Tales. I have been unable to discern why those appear but others do not. No matter, you will be able to control which titles you want to appear in the NOOK kids app (see “Using the Shop and Parents Button,” later).

To download the book to your iPad so that you can read it, tap the Download button. You can tap the red x button to stop the download if you like (see Figure 4).

To scroll up and down in your library, just press the screen and while holding your finger to the screen drag your finger up or down.
If you tap the Refresh button, any new purchases will appear or archived items will disappear.
You have two other options here: Shop and Parents. We’ll cover these later in the “Using the Shop and Parents Button” section.
