The ABC’s of Kids & Ebooks: Understanding the E-Reading Habits of Children Aged 2-13
In a recent nationally representative survey conducted by PlayScience and Digital Book World, it was found that 54% of all children aged 2-to-13 in the U.S. read ebooks. Considering that about a quarter of U.S. adults read ebooks, that’s an astounding fact. With this latest holiday season and the increased ubiquity of e-reading, parents and children are becoming more comfortable with children’s digital content and are becoming voracious consumers of it.
Join Digital Book World and PlayScience in revealing more astounding results and insights from our survey of parents and children on the topic of digital books and e-reading.
