Children Prefer Physical Books
Experts suggest that the physical connection with the book can increase attention span and facilitate learning.
There is a common perception that children prefer to read books on digital devices such as an iPad or Kindles. But new research shows that this is not the case.
Recent studies support that children, especially ages 4 to 8 who use devices for e-Reading did not tend to use their devices for reading, but rather divert their attention to other activities such as videos, cartoons and games.
Children associate digital devices with games and videos. It is very hard, for adults as well, to maintain attention span on a digital device that handles a lot of other fun activities as well.
Research also found that the more devices a child had access to, the less they read in general.
Experts suggest that providing children with digital books can hinder their reading, and that paper books are often still preferred by young people. The physical connection with the book can increase attention span and facilitate learning. Physical books are also connected to a primal need we developed over thousands of years of evolution.
It is also important to note here that the most enthusiastic book readers do not associate books with digital devices.
