Reading to your kids, ipad reading, and audio books ... - Page 2

post #21 of 24
This is rather late in the discussion, but I only just noticed the comment against Magic Tree House books and want to reply. I read them to my son. Not only did I enjoy the stories, but they nearly always sparked further investigation into the event the story was based in.

Great info on The Shadow!

I love the feel of a good book!  I love turning the pages.  I love the feel of the paper.  I love to get a nice old book and cracking it open to read to the kids.  I do have a Kobo and I read that too for myself.  I also get books from the library to read.  Personally, I enjoy a book more.  My just about 10yo daughter will get a Kobo for Christmas.  I just don't want to rely solely on that.  I don't want to give up paper books.

I still love the feel of paper books but I am less attached to that now that I have began reading on electronic devices.  I resisted for a long time but it's just more convenient to have everything in one device.  That said, I CAN NOT read poetry on an electronic device.  I just can't even imagine.  Poetry needs to be touched as much as it is read.  So, I guess I have a line drawn somewhere.

I agree, they are great conversation starters.  My Ds devours them.  We have all 40 books in audio form and he regularly listens to them.  I, on the other hand, did not enjoy reading them out loud.
