There’s a cultural narrative about how electronic devices are pulling children away from books. It’s often said that the students don’t read anymore because their eyeballs are glued to their phones and ttechnophobes think we are raising a generation that doesn’t understand the value of literature.
But when it comes to books, most studies show that the text delivery method is irrelevant. E-readers, tablets, laptop screens are all capable of delivering long-form text. Books have nothing to do with paper. In fact, electronic devices only increase access to books
There are so many ways in which reading continues to be both a vital skill for children to master, and an important source of knowledge and pleasure that can last a lifetime. Nurture it in your children. As you help your kids appreciate the magic of reading, you'll find that there's a whole wonderful world full of children's literature out there that YOU can enjoy too.
