My daughter is OBSESSED with reading. I love reading so am particularly pleased to see that she has fallen in love with reading.
She's about to turn eight, and thinking ahead to Christmas, what she would really like is a kindle.
I can see the pros and cons.
Pro: making the transition to an electronic device would free up so much room from where her books are currently shelved, stacked and piled.
Con: As much as I love my kindle, I do miss the pleasure of opening up a brand new book, you know - the whole holding carefully so not to ruin the spine, while you inhale the scent of the paper!
Anyway... I digress. So, currently my daughter reads a few books that have illustrations (she's just finished reading Patterson's middle school books and she's got wimpy kid to read next, after she's finished her Dahl books). If I were to get her a kindle; what are the illustrations like on the kids books? Will she be missing out? Do I have to buy a paperwhite to get quality images (not purchasing her a fire) or would an older style kindle be okay in terms of images etc.
Is there a massive range of kids books, or is she going to end up with a mix of paper and electronic?
I'm just curious about other peoples experiences with children and kindles.
