Abstract: 
Fostering children’s reading skills is of significance in their learning. Reading materials recently have been expanded from paper-based books to digital books and even the multimedia books. In this research we explored a synchronous collaborative learning using Group scribble software and self-adopted e-picture book based on our traditional local paper-based reading books. Experimental group and control group were established to investigate the effectiveness of using GS –based e-picture book in developing students’ reading and comprehension skills. The results indicated that great improvement in using GS–based e-picture book in reading as well as great enhancement of motivation and interest of learning by collaborative learning with GS.
