Quoting jen2150:You should use whatever medium they prefer. We take a whole immersion approach. We use as many approaches as possible.
What ever the child is comfortable with. I like the readers because if the child is struggling with a word they can touch the word to get the definition. Also they can change the font size & style to one they like in every book they read where as with real books you are stuck with what it is printed as. If I where to go buy one for my children I would get them a Kindle because if you have an Amazon Prime account you can borrow a lot of books from them for free just like from a library, you can't do that with a Nook.
As long as they are responsible enough to take care of it, I would let them use whatever they are comfortable with.
We use both. I love that I have a bunch of books that my kids can hold and touch. We also have tablets that have the Kindle App on them and the kids can read on those as well. I have gotten a ton of books for free and my kids love to read. I love that they LOVE to read and it makes me feel great knowing that I have given them a gift that they will have for the rest of their life.
Whatever works! My teen and I read paper, read on our Nooks, and read on our phones! She reads fan-fic on her phone, I use mine to read on the Kindle app if I can't get the book on my Nook. We get twitchy if we're more than an arm's length away from a story. *gg*
what everyone else is saying, use whatever it takes for them to read!! reading is reading no matter how its done!
