Introducing the new and improved hammer: This week, Amazon released the Kindle Kids Edition, “ideal for both beginner and experienced chapter book readers.” (Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos owns The Washington Post.) It’s the familiar six-inch e-reader spruced up with a cute case and access to more than a thousand child-friendly books. Tiger Moms will love the built-in dictionary and word lists that “take reading to the next level.” The next level, if you don’t know, is flashcards.

All children should be forced to read all of Dickens in the original form with a chaser of Dostoyevsky for leavening.

 I wish there was more pushing for children to read for pleasure ... I don't particularly care if it's an ebook or physical book .... they just need to read  :-)

Guess that's an OK thing, but I'd really prefer kids learn to use the library.

It is too bad that going to the library without an escort or maybe even armed guards around is almost impossible these days, after all, there are WAY too many demons and evil people out there.  Acting independently of close supervision is to create a state of fear that seems to be desirable these days.

Sorry, but I have to jab at all the helicopter parents and those who insist on raising children to fear everything not under a direct parental or armed authority umbrella.  Those NOT under an umbrella of supervision are now free to engage in fearmongering by being independent and possibly domineering, becoming those evil bullies out there.

I've  heard about some libraries having to shut down because they're being used by the homeless or the drug addicts living on the street.  They're sleeping inside,  sometimes outside on the steps.  I wouldn't want to have to make my way through all that...and I certainly wouldn't want my kids to have to do that.
