In this book, two wise and long-admired observers of childrens make-believe look at the cognitive and moral potential--and concern--created by electronic media.As Dorothy and Jerome Singer show, violent images in games and TV are as toxic as many observers have feared by stimulating destructive ideas and troubling aggression.

But should all electronic media be banned from childrens lives? Calmly and authoritatively, the Singers argue that in fact some screen time can enrich childrens creativity and play, and can even promote school readiness. With guidance from parents and teachers, empathy, creativity, and imagination can expand and intensify in the electronic age.
