Reading a book can be a very tactile experience: holding the book in your hands or lap, turning the pages, feeling the paper, pouring over the art and text. With electronic readers, one can carry tons of books with them anywhere, but there is a reason picture books still remain popular in their "analog" format. Picture books beg to be read in print, in paper. It's an experience like no other. And that is even truer for "lift-the-flap" books, where readers are encouraged to lift or move a piece of paper in order to reveal another layer and move the story forward. These books may need to be handled with a little extra care, but most books are now being produced with sturdier paper and flaps. Kids love them!
