Paper Books Promote More Interaction
June 17, 2019
It took me a long time not to judge myself through someone else's eyes.
-Sally Field

In an article in Newsweek magazine, Kashmira Gander describes a research project that assessed whether there was a difference in interactions between parents and children when paper books or ebooks were used. Gander reports that:

“Parents and toddlers who read paper books together speak and interact more when compared with those who read e-books...

Researchers found parents and toddlers spoke more when interacting with a paper book rather than a story on an electronic tablet. What's more, parents used richer language when using print books compared with tablets, and collaborated more with their children.”
