Gabrielle E. Miller, national executive director for Raising a Reader, a nonprofit organization based in Silicon Valley that is dedicated to early literacy development, has written a piece discussing the current battle between print and digital books. More specifically, she addresses the issue of digital books for children.
Miller discusses pros and cons for both print and digital books for children. For example, she says that you cannot put a Kindle in the bathtub with a child such as you can do with a vinyl book; however, when going on vacation there is not always room for 15 print books, but there is room for one Kindle. Miller concludes by saying that we need both forms of books for children, and children who are only exposed to one form will lose out. Read the full article at The Washington Post online.
