Omily Topatus and the Woolly Mittens of Chaos

I ask because although I hardly ever see a kid without their face down at some sort of touch-screen device, I wonder if they consume books that way. Surely the appeal of technology would engage young readers as much, if not more, than traditional books. Yet children's books have still not experienced the volume of interest that adult ebooks have.

ebooks are a hot potato for kids. Give a tablet to a kid and they either need supervision or you need to know how to use parent locks. Otherwise your kid will be playing minecraft or clash of clans rather than reading. Give a child a book and they will read it, hopefully. So from a parent's point of view, they are more likely to favour real books (and don't forget your library!) than ebooks.

Friends who have children say children like using Kindle E-readers for reading. There are parental controls and something called Freetime on both e-readers and the Kindle Fires so parents can control what their children do.
