Parents are conflicted, too — 68 percent prefer that their 6- to 8-year-olds read print books, Scholastic found.
The hands-on experience. Some experts, including Taylor, worry that devices can distance little kids from the real world. Falling in love with reading. Cuddling with a parent over a book or gathering around the teacher for storytime helps kids associate reading with nurturing.

Her research has found that parents often become more controlling, concentrating more on what their child is doing with the device instead of talking about the story. Focusing a child's attention. Boosting early reading skills. For the past four years the Center for Literacy at the University of Akron has been studying how to integrate e-readers into classrooms.
When Brueck tested pre-K students, a third knew the words before reading the story with a grown-up on an e-reader. But what they did find: It's more interactive.
While add-ons can distract, they are extremely useful for beginning readers, who can zoom in on unfamiliar words or click links that help make connections to their world, says Guernsey.
It's more rewarding. Kim Floyd has been teaching kindergarten in Napa Valley, CA, for 24 years and using iPads loaded with books for the last three.
It will likely be awhile before parents and children themselves can opt into the new subscription system. Scholastic has confirmed with Good e-Reader that they are developing a Family Streaming service that is currently in the Research and Development stage.
Therefore the sales structure has not been announced as single title or subscription or both. There has been no ETA given for the official launch, but likely we will not hear about until next year.
The main priority is to get the new Education system up and running. Basically, what Scholastic is doing is shuttering selling eBooks directly to schools, parents and kids. Instead, they are adopting a more financially lucrative subscription based system, which alienates families.
Why have a parent download a few titles a year, when you can have steady income generated from hundreds of schools in the US all paying a few thousand dollars a year. This view approach distinguished Scholastic from other publishing companies who too narrowly focus on literacy in its traditional form. In the past couple years each of these companies have shut down an ebookstore, leaving at least some of their customers in the lurch.
Customers were given a 3 week warning to transfer their downloads to the Nook Store. That process was hit or miss for US customers, but that is better than how international customers were treated; they were simply told tough luck.
And then a year later the Nook Store launched internationally. And earlier this year Samsung abruptly shut down Readers Hub , their ebookstore, and replaced it with the recently launched co-branded site app.
Samsung announced the closure about 6 weeks in advance, but at least some existing customers were given no notice of the closure and only discovered after the fact that they had lost access to their ebooks and related notes and highlights.
It's times like this that make me wonder whether we need new consumer protection laws to stop otherwise healthy companies from simply shuttering digital services and leaving customers with no content, no money, and no recourse. Sure, one could argue that it is covered under a contract, but is that a fair or reasonable contract?Plus, technology will never replace good parenting and good teachers.
The numbers are closer than I thought. Yet it was also heard that parents are concerned that digital devices are distracting children from reading. Once products targeted primarily at adults, e-reading devices have expanded to include a younger audience: Some experts, including Taylor, worry that devices can distance little kids from the real world.
Digital May Trump Print Because
