Benefits Of Children’s Ebooks
Many people have heard the term ebook but have never
actually seen or read one. This is a great loss as
ebooks can really help young children get involved
with the literary world.
If you try to sit a 5 year old down and read him
Treasure Island, it’s going to be a battle and you may
experience some resistance.
If you were to get Treasure Island as an ebook
however, it might have cool pirate music and pictures
that help add a better sensory experience to it.
Some ebooks will read the story page by page by
clicking on an icon and this can help children learn
phonics and tone.
Many children with attention deficit disorder have
improved their ability to pay attention with ebooks.
Some children just can’t pay attention to a standard
book but when they are at a computer or other
multimedia device, they have an easier time.
This is because reading a standard book is a passive
activity but clicking a mouse to change pictures and
flip pages is much more active.
Some children are just resistant to reading period.
They just don’t want anything to do with sitting and
reading a book and won’t let you read them one.
If this happens, try an ebook! As long as it’s
something kid friendly and not boring, you might find
you have an avid reader on your hands! Pictures and
audio can really spice up almost any book.
In the age of video games, any educational opportunity
shouldn’t be overlooked and ebooks are a great way for
beginning readers to learn and help older readers
improve their skills.
