This article examines whether digital publication of children’s literature can encourage reluctant readers to discover a love of books. I examine interactive books and book apps to see whether interactivity distracts from or adds value to the text and question whether children are actually choosing to read in a digital format. My research is based on a variety of academic papers and online material together with a small local survey of teachers and school children. My findings show that not every form of interactive book is beneficial to a reluctant reader and that, although children enjoy using ereaders, they have no strong preference for digital books over print versions.
