Lovely readers, the wonderful folks at Upstart Crow Literary pointed me to this video, the latest idea about how to bring e-readers to kids (in this case, through an iPhone App/Picture book mating):
Now this book doesn’t have words, or really a story. It’s more of a touchscreen demo of the possibilities that could come. I’ve blogged about e-readers, and other goodies, but my end-of-2009 projection continues to be that e-readers in some incarnation will land in kid’s hands long before we expect them to.
What do you think of this, gentle readers? Do kids already have too much screen time? Will they lose their love of the written word, if everything, even the books they grow up with, are interactive?
