Could children’s books become so outdated they just disappeared from sight? It might seem far-fetched, but how can we be sure?
Technology persists and many forms of print media will fail in the digital age. Will books disappear, too?
Lets examine the future of the beloved book together. Kids want more interactive stories. With the touch of a finger, something moves or pops up. And then there are games on mobile devices and computers, not to mention televisions. Kids are now bombarded all day with many different flashy stimuli. It can be hard to wind down and find the time and a quiet environment to read, and to dream . . . What can we do?
I have loved books all my life. Since I was a small child I always had a book in my hand–that’s how I met fairies and gnomes! As I grew older, I always enjoyed reading, although the amount of time I could dedicate to that pleasure became infringed upon, with work and children, etc., etc. You know the story.
I still feel the attraction to the printed book. I love libraries and I could spend days in a bookstore. I just feel good in those places. The thought that bookstores and libraries may not exist in the future saddens me. I hope I do not see it happen in my lifetime. I honestly hope it never happens.
We can help by reading books daily. I know everyone will say they do not have enough time; but one chapter per day–perhaps only 15 minutes of invaluable time a child can enjoy with a parent or guardian–could be enough to save our future.
