Technology's come a long way, and it's about time that extended towards parenting tools! PicPocket Books ($1-4) are a godsend for busy parents with packed purses. Download books of your choice (choose from ones for all ages) onto your iPhone and revel in the suddenly quiet, absorbed child beside you. Full-color pictures and optional narration keep it an interactive experience, as does the option for words to become highlighted as they're narrated - a great way to reinforce reading skills for older kids.
