A new study has found that there may have been some truth in the advertising of personalized books as beneficial to children.
Ten years of research on these customizable books revealed, according to Scientific American, that children laughed and smiled more when reading these with their parents.
And when the books were both printed and personalized (versus being digital), preschoolers showed higher learning rates of new words.
That said, a different study didn’t find — as personalized-book publishers claimed — that children absorbed the moral lessons of such books better.
Literary Hub has links to the research on personalized children’s books, for those wanting a deeper dive.
