Kids and media

I read on our wonderful little kiosk screens in the elevator the other day that kids spend more time watching tv than they do read or being read to. Now, while this shouldn’t surprise me – it kind of did.

I will agree that TV for kids has grown leaps and bounds. I love shows like Dora the Explorer, Blues Clues and others that teach valuable, educational lessons and make it fun.

This does not, however, replace books.

Gosh. READ people.

    When I was a kid I was a voracious reader.

    Which is why today I can use words like voracious properly 🙂
