I have a gaggle of grandkids scattered across the country. When my own kids were little a few decades ago, the little Golden Books were among their favorites, and over the years, we accumulated quite a collection. Now, three of my granddaughters, each age 5 or under, have their own Android tablets with Wi-Fi access. All three can tap, pinch and swipe the screen with a degree of expertise that could put many adults to shame. Good or bad? That could be debated, but these kids are quite at home using technology.
