Here is a video of a 1-year-old growing up around iPad who is then given a magazine. Notice how she tries to turn the magazine pages by sliding and pressing her fingers.   ow.ly/1yzKXW<http://t.co/ft3MEMCk>

Food for thought:

·         What might the implications be for her learning to read?

·         Is this something to be concerned about or are the times changing?

·         If you think this is a concern, when and how should we family support workers and librarian talk with parents about this issue?

·         If you think the times are changing, how should we family support workers and librarian change to support children and families like the one portrayed in the video?
