There’s an App for that, too. As the NYT recently featured, Kindoma lets you and your kid read e-books together on your iPads – complete with video and audio of each other as well as being able to point to specific words or pictures. Clearly this was designed for the distant parent or grandparent, but there’s no reason it couldn’t be used with your distant child. However, if you were instead the distant teacher, and wanted to read to a whole class of students – who might also be separated from each other – I’d take a look at Nearpod and, together with Skype, interact with the class.
