Kimora Makes Her Mommy Life Easier With Nook!

by Kathy Sykes on January 11, 2012 · 4 comments

What do you think about children reading books using a tablet versus the real deal? I think that it is great for children who travel a lot with their parents because who wants to tug along a suitcase full of books. But does it make sense for the child who goes to traditional school or maybe is home-schooled?

It is a consideration for me because I have an issue with storing hundreds of books in my son’s room. There is never going to be enough space. And I have found many of his favorite books on preschooler apps on my smart phone. He is just as excited about those as the real deal.

I think tablet readers can also be useful for long vacation rides and overnight camps during the summer. But is it worth it for everyday use? We frequent our local library and since my son has yet to start reading (though he loves books), we gotta stick with the real deal. Maybe later when he can read on his own, we will invest in a reader. Right now, I think it would be a crutch that may delay his reading.

I don’t know, those are just my thoughts. What say you?

P.S. Doesn’t Kimora look FABULOUS?

It seems everything is becoming electronic these days! I much prefer real books. I don’t think I want my son reading on a machine. Just like I want to limit his time watching the tv or on a computer, I think the nook falls in the same category. Just my opinion 🙂

Catie-
I know from experience, looking at a computer screen all day at work and at home, how important it is to have a break from electronics! I have decided not to get him “addicted” too early.

I’m with you, it’s good for traveling… but I still like having an actual book in my hand. I prefer that my kids read traditional books and magazines. We are all on computers, and devices more than we probably should be, and our eyes need a break!

I still love the fact of being able to pack a “good book” for vacation.
