Every parent looking for excellent reading time with their small child would do well to choose an old-fashioned book over a newfangled e-reader, a new study argues.
Researchers report that every parents and kid perform to have excellent-shared knowledge when they're reading a book together than when they read with a tablet.
Parent and child supervised to scuffle over the tablet, stated lead researcher Dr. Tiffany Munzer, a colleague in developmental behavior pediatrics at the University of Michigan's C.S. Mott Children's Hospital.
Munzer said that "In this lesson, print books were large for developing an environment that was rich with the exchange, but the tablet seems to create some incident between parents and small children who were both trying to manage the tablet,".
This lesson isn't the first by Munzer to increase questions concerning the value of e-books when reading to young children. Another study announced in Pediatrics last March looked at verbal interactions when parents and children shared an e-book.
