Kids Prefer Print Books Before Bed

When it comes to sharing books and reading before bed, kids prefer print to digital, a new report from Scholastic suggests.

Do you think publishers should make it easier to share digital books? Social Times has more:

In the fourth edition of the Kids & Family Reading Report, researchers asked children ages 6-17 and their parents about their reading habits for both electronic and printed books.

Print books are seen by kids as better for sharing with friends and reading at bedtime.
