Digital Books Fine For Kids

Despite popular claims, digital books aren’t turning our kids’ brains to mush according to this post from Jeremy Greenfield of TheStreet.com.  From the piece:

“Despite years of reports of angsty parents uncomfortable with putting their children to sleep to warm glow of an iPad, evidence that digital reading is bad for your kids is scattered. The American Academy of Pediatrics’ recent recommendation that children under two-years-old have no “screen time” is not based on any data, the organization has admitted. A recent New York Times article cited several studies that suggest a parent and child reading a print book together has added benefits over doing the same in digital.”
