Kottke on the extinction of paper children’s books:

However, I’d like to assure the childless Rose that if paper books ever go extinct (they won’t), paper children’s books will be the last to go, particularly among the pre-K crowd. E-books are “broken” in several ways that are important to kids, not the least of which is that paper books are super useful as floors in really tall block buildings.

Amen to that.

    I have to agree also. Kids are very tactile and quite mobile. Having paper (or cardboard in some cases) books goes a lot further for them than some sort of breakable electronic format.

    I cannot imagine a world without book building blocks! Such a travesty, if that were to ever happen!
