For February 15, 2013: Building the reference collection continues with World Book's free This Day in History app for the iPad. Choose a date on the calendar on the left and several events pop up on the right side of the screen. Each selection contains an image and brief information about the person or topic.  Some include audio such as the recitation of Lincoln's Gettysburg Address or the Wedding March by Felix Mendelssohn, born February 3, 1809. World Book's interface is very intuitive and appealing for all ages.
