Which one do you favor? I find ipad books and audio books give me more time to do something else so I tend to let the kids do more of that instead of reading to them as much as I used to. I still answer their questions (if they have any after reading/listening to a book) but they seem to be generally satisfied. And my son loves his audio Magic Tree House books and I am grateful because I did not enjoy reading them to him.
Before bed, instead of the traditional story reading, we now do story-telling. We each tell one story we make up on the spot. The kids love it and I get to listen to their sprawling, unwieldy stories. My daughter's sense of humor really comes through in these stories and I love that.
Basically, I feel like book reading is taken care of by the ipad! But sometimes, I can't help but feel I am contributing to the demise of traditional paper books and my kids are missing something by growing up with electronic books. We have traditional paper books of course and we read them but just not as much as we used to. I can't help but wonder if this has some sort of implication .... Anyway, just rambling.
What do you guys do?
