Apple released an update to iBooks Author that allows you to import ePub files as a new book project.
Peter Pappas's insight:

Once in iBooks Author your book is converted to Apple’s .ibooks format. This means you can use all the great formatting tools with iBooks Author, but as your book is no longer an ePub file you won’t be able to use it in Book Creator or read on non-Apple devices.

Free iBooks Author Widget - add a Google Map to your iBook

Peter Pappas's insight:

Download a world map widget that uses Google Maps with Earth view.  Students can see the entire planet or zoom in for as much detail as possible.  As you can see in the video, within seconds, you can go from a view of the entire world to one specific location (like the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York).  Since you can zoom in and out freely, you really only need the one map to cover anything you'd want students to see throughout the world.
