It's better to read your child a book vs. a tablet: study

Posted: Updated:

(CNN Newsource) -- When it comes to reading to your children before bedtime a print book is better than a tablet. 

That's according to a new study from the University of Michigan. 

It found parents who read to their child on a tablet have less social interactions together. 

Research also showed parents weren't able to get their children to engage with the story when they read from screens.

Toddlers were more likely to reach for the tablets or try to close the app, making it difficult for parents to focus on reading.
