Books, not EBooks for Kids

PulseMessagesOct-29Here is a really important article for all parents to read, particularly parents of young children, who may be wondering about ‘interactive books.’

The Atlantic: Effect of Reading Tablets

Here’s my favorite quote from the article:

“Fiction can show you a different world. It can take you somewhere you’ve never been. Once you’ve visited other worlds, like those who ate fairy fruit, you can never be entirely content with the world that you grew up in. Discontent is a good thing: discontented people can modify and improve their worlds, leave them better, leave them different.”

As the writer of this article states, let’s not lose this possibility that the books we offer our children will lead them to create an even better world. Whether we read them fairy tales, as Einstein suggests, or just quality fiction, please… read with your children.
