eBooks are NOT bad for your kids!

Digital Book World has some great articles about electronic publishing for children. Check out this one entitled: Are Children’s E-Books Really Terrible For Your Children?

My favourite part:
If you pay attention to the media covering book publishing, you have probably noticed a recent uptick in stories about of children’s e-books and apps. Much of this coverage is borderline-hysterical scare-mongering over zombified children’s faces lit by the flickering glow of the blue iPad screen.
Shouldn’t they, instead, be curled up in front of a warm fire with an oversized edition of Berenstain Bears, cuddling with both parents under an old quilt sewn by wise grandmothers at a time when peace filled the earth?
