Is this the question we should really be asking? Perhaps it should be “How can I make e-reading work for my family?”
Research is starting to find that e-readers are motivating some reluctant readers to pick up a device and crack open a book. For some, e-readers makes reading slightly edgier and cool. For others, adjusting the font might be the key. Now with e-readers allowing for color and illustration, devices are more attractive than ever.
The best thing that the adults can do to help children become life long readers, however, is not simply providing them with the newest and greatest gadget. What we can do is model reading behavior, regardless of platform. Let our children see us reading books, magazines, e-readers, newspapers et cetera.
