I get it parents sometimes it’s just easier to pick up a smartphone or tablet and find a book to read online. There is a such a bigger selection for your kids, and sometimes they get sick of hearing the same thing over and over gain. I am the first to admit that there at times I will scroll trying to find a new book to read to my son. While we have tons of books at home it’s nice to have a bigger selection.
There is a new study that was done saying that parents that read to their children from actual books find it easier to bond with them than using tablets. The study found that parents and kids both can have fun with a read book by flipping pages, reading. While using a tablet it really is just the person that is holding it to have control over the book. Dr. Tiffany Munzer who did the study also found that curling up with your children and a book make everyone feel cozy and that those stories even come alive more.
