In the world of children’s literature, the first evidence is that e-books are not going to replace traditional books. Parents don’t choose e-books over books, but rather they choose them over games, when they need to keep their kids entertained. Digital books provide a new interactive and educational experience that can be a good substitute for addictive games and passive TV-watching!

Here are some of the main benefits of using e-books:

  • e-books promote reading. People reading ebooks spend more time reading.
