Google Brings Doodles To eBooks

Google has added a Doodle mode in the Google eBooks Web Reader. The new feature that lets you draw, color and connect-the-dots in kids’ eBooks.

The Google blog explains how to use the feature’s virtual crayons: “Use your mouse to click inside the box, and you’ll start drawing with the crayon. You can use Doodle Mode in the Web Reader whether you’re accessing it through your computer or iPad. Doodles aren’t saved, so you’re free to doodle again and again on the pages of the ebooks without having to worry about using them up. (But if you do create a particularly stunning doodle, be sure to take a picture or a screenshot.)”

The feature currently works in The Everything Kids series of kids books which includes: The Everything Kids’ Connect Dots Puzzle and Activity Book, The Everything Kids’ Mazes Book and The Everything Kids’ Hidden Pictures Book.
