Traditional Books versus Electronic Books for Children

A children book

Last weekend, I stopped by for a cup of hot latte in Barnes and Nobel Cafe. The book cart in front of the bookstore building was still standing between two pillars in entrance door.

The books in the cart were getting lower price and there were only few novels and children books left. One of the books in the cart took my attention, The Noah Ark! That is my favorite story. 

I bought the book and would give it to Cassie, a three year old granddaughter of Ms Lynnell, a member of group in our community.

This traditional book brought some thoughts about between traditional book and e-book for better reading media for children's cognitive development.

Lately many suggest to use e-book and interactive e-book for children, especially children in 0 to 5 year-old.

This age is critical for book reading, because reading book able to support their healthy brain development. 


Books for children sold out.

It is important for development vocabulary, literacy, language skill, then lead to better academic.

Many “busy” parents give tablet or any screen for their children with some books in it, some of interactive e-books can help parents to read the books when busy parents do not have time to read them for their children.

Some other parents give time limit for their kids to access electronic devices, and facilitate them with traditional books.

Ms Lynnell is one of them, she always has time for reading the traditional books for Cassie. Cassie' parents also have some times for her bed time reading.

Cassie loves to show all of hers. She like to show her baby dolls, puzzles, and books.

She prefers traditional books because she can show, carry, and pretend to read her books for every body.

She has favorite pages in every single book. Oh-oh she drawn happy faces and little dolls on those pages too.

Finally, what do you think about traditional and e-books?

  3. Both conventional and digital are worth, in modern era we need more secure more space to store such kind documentations, included BOOKS. Digital books are solution to not more cost and more times to pay a physical library building.

    In future, all are going to be changed. Everything will not the same again.

  4. It is true, Evi. My son prefers electronic books. As most young people find it more accessible to read that way on that support and not with the traditional books that I have in my library. However, the important thing is that you read, important for your mind and your imagination.

    Big hug, Evi. Excellent article. As usual.

  5. I still prefer traditional books, but ebook is easier to get lots of books in one setting. I guess both have their advantages and disadvantages.

  7. Para la edad de la niña libros tradicionales. Pero si me hablas a mi como lector ya un poco más madura y sin plata libros electrónicos son mas baratos y puedes tener mayor absceso.

  8. Hi, Evi! I think it is more useful to read paper books for children. At the present time kids spend much time at computers. E-books make their eyesight bad.

  9. Jeśli chodzi o książki dla dzieci to jestem za tym, aby były w wersji tradycyjnej. Dziecko powinno jak najwięcej przeglądać książek, dzięki temu oswajaj się z literami, niektóre już zaczyna rozpoznawać. Poza tym książki dla dzieci mają ilustracje więc dodatkowo pobudzają one dziecięcą wyobraźnię.
    Miłego dnia!:))

  10. The technological development in the 21st century has progressed so much that it is slowly displacing paper books, I personally read traditional books but also e-books, although I value the paper book more, it works better because you mark where you finish.
    In electronic books this is not always a good solution because not all devices have tabs to mark where you have left and come back to in this place which you have finished to start reading from this place.

  26. The main thing is to love a book. But I love it when a child can bring you the book -- the one book they want to have read to them right now! Not a computer or a tablet, but a book with mysteries on the next page to come.

  29. I'm absolutely convinced that it is very important to read with children books and it is really a pity that nowadays some parents manage this with the electronic way. The book you bought seems to be beautiful!

  31. It all depends on the parents themselves. There are parents encouraging traditional books and there are parents encouraging their little kids with electronic devices.

  32. Jeg syns bloggen din er veldig intressang!
    Bøker er best så klart!Barn lærer å lese.Det er en fin ting med en bok.Jeg er ikke så begeistret for nettbrett osv.Men slik er fremtiden-Barn må beherske data og kunsten og lese skrive osv på web.
    Flott innlegg !
