Many people have heard the term ebook but have never actually seen or read one. This is a great loss as ebooks can really help young children get involved with the literary world.
If you try to sit a 5 year old down and read him Treasure Island, its going to be a battle and you may experience some resistance.
If you were to get Treasure Island as an ebook however, it might have cool pirate music and pictures that help add a better sensory experience to it.
Some ebooks will read the story page by page by clicking on an icon and this can help children learn phonics and tone.
Many children with attention deficit disorder have improved their ability to pay attention with ebooks. Some children just cant pay attention to a standard book but when they are at a computer or other multimedia device, they have an easier time.
This is because reading a standard book is a passive activity but clicking a mouse to change pictures and flip pages is much more active.
Some children are just resistant to reading period. They just dont want anything to do with sitting and reading a book and wont let you read them one.
If this happens, try an ebook! As long as its something kid friendly and not boring, you might find you have an avid reader on your hands! Pictures and audio can really spice up almost any book.
In the age of video games, any educational opportunity shouldnt be overlooked and ebooks are a great way for beginning readers to learn and help older readers improve their skills.
