He says, ‘children have become so consumed with electronic devices that many parents fear it is restricting their ability to experience the delights of traditional print books. The demands of the electronic age are now so great that the federal Department of Health has been forced to recommend that kids spend no more than two hours a day on devices to allow time for physical exercise.'
And that, 'Educators agree it is still vitally important for children to read traditional print books such as the classic Mr Men and Little Miss series from an early age.’
How absolutely refreshing!
I love to read, and I can do it just as easily via a traditional print book - or my Kindle if I'm travelling.
But I just love the feel of a print book. I like to study the cover and the the back page blurb. I love the smell of freshly printed pages.
And I get the opportunity to use one of the many bookmarks I have collected from locations around the world.
Can't do any of that with an e-book!
