Lewisville, N.C. – Warren Buckleitner, PhD, founding editor of Children’s Technology Review, has written a new book that answers parents’ and teachers’ questions about how and when to use tablets with children. Buckleitner’s Guide to Using Tablets with Young Children provides expert guidance on how tablets can be used effectively to enhance play and learning for children ages 2 and up.

“Whether we like it or not, tablets have become are a regular part of a modern child's daily routine," said Buckleitner, who is also a CODiE award winner. “Whether this increased technology time is good or bad depends on which tablet you choose, the apps you put on it, and the context you create for its use."
