Tradtional v electronic

This might be a bit of a blow for the current attempts to push electronic reading aids but according to research pre-school children get a more positive interaction when sharing a reading experience with parents.

A story about the "Electronic books: Boon or Bust for Interactive Reading?" study released by researchers at Temple University's Infant Laboratory and Erikson Institute in Chicago is on Medical News Today.

Bearing in mind how many electronic learning aids will be sold over Christmas the findings that traditional books provide a better reading experience have come out at a very interesting time and for those of us who love books it is a minor cause for celebration.
