Rob's big sister here! yes, we still have a whole IKEA Billy bookcase full of Enc Brit and the ensuing Year Books. And yes, we still sit and read it - there is nothing as emotionally and intellectually satisfying as looking something up and following the trail in well made and printed books (well perhaps there is, but you know what I mean!). We had Encarta as well (I'd forgotten that, Robert!) I think that it was important to set an example to the children that knowledge was accessible, interesting and satisfying. Digital just makes the accessible bit easier. But you have to be sure that it's reliable, which is why I don't use Wikipedia all that much - and not having an iPad or iPhone makes accessing Enc Brit more difficult for me rather than easier. We'll see what happens!
