58% of kids say they will always want to read physical books.

Who says print is dead? Not today’s kiddos. According to Scholastic’s biennial Kids & Family Reading Report, the majority of youngsters ages 9–17 aren’t yet ready to ditch their paperbacks for tablets—and never will be. Although the numbers have fallen a bit since 2010, when 66 percent said they couldn’t do without tangible tomes, Scholastic’s chief academic officer, Francie Alexander, cautions parents not to read too much into the dip. “A loved one’s lap is more important than any laptop,” she says, “because, for most kids, that is where the emotional connection to print comes from.” Besides, how are you supposed to delay bedtime without a stack of books for backup.
