I don't know the logic for requiring a young child to have a physical book to play with versus a child like e-reader? If they are going to go home to e-readers and "grow" into e-readers they should start with e-readers. Plus the ability to add music and movement inside of a story in an e-reader blows any book away and keeps the childs attention.
I think we should pretty much do away with textbooks assuming a wireless connection is available.
It's inevitable and the sooner our schools get on board and adapt, the more likely we are ahead of the curve instead of behind it.
