  •  E-books vs. Print. (14+ / 0-)

    My daughter has lots of print books. Her grandmother just gave her a set of 12 more. There's a problem though, she can't see them well enough to read them. Yes, we read them to her, but she's 9 and needs practice in reading and reading comprehension. She's getting too old for picture books to hold a lot of interest, and books for tweens are rarely found in true large print.

    This is where the E-books come in. E-books I can enlarge until she can see them. Through the Kindle the world of literature is opening up to her.

    So yes, we still go to the library, but she tends to haunt the DVD's and reference sections (lots of pictures at least and some educational DVD's as well) rather than the books any longer. She does go to the children's books section sometimes to read to a younger child, because she enjoys that. But, if it weren't for E-books I doubt my inquisitive young girl would have become the reader she currently is, and is becoming more every day.
