Kids books not showing up on iPad

I have purchased a few kids books using the Nook app on my iPad. The books are NOT showing up in the Nook Kids app. I see where I can go in and tell it to show this book or that book and they are not even showing up for me to select. I do see them in the regular Nook app, but it says that they are not supported at this time. They are Read and Play books so I am guessing that is why they aren't available in the regular Nook app.


Any suggestions?

Re: Kids books not showing up on iPad

If it is a read & play book, for example, Go Dog Go, it is ONLY available on the Nook Color.  I also have an iPad2 and can't get any of these books on it.  It is because the read & play books require Flash, which the iPad & iPad2 does NOT support.  If you look at the book, it will tell you if it is available for only the NookColor or if it supports the iPad application.  So far, I have been able to open all books on the iPad application except for the few read & play books that are available.  The read to me books are fine to open on the iPad app.


Hope this helps, Michelle
