Hello, everyone! Just recently, in one of my homeschool books, I was asked to write a persuasive summary on why books are better than television. Once I finished writing and after my mom checked it, she put a note saying that I could post my summary on this blog! I thought that would be a great idea, so I decided to do it! Here is my persuasive summary on ‘Why Books are better than Television’.
Why Books are Better than Television
Persuasive Entry by Sofie Chang
People have advanced in technology since then — several types of phones are being made, VR (Virtual Reality) makes it possible to be inside a 3-D game, and scientists are even creating a special type of pill that can be swallowed to open emails! Many people can be seen tapping and texting on phones, playing video games, and watching TV. Others, however, prefer reading, making crafts, and more other things that usually don’t involve screen staring. I think that everyone, including children and adults, should try to lessen the time of staring at those little screens and read more books. I think that books are much better than television, but a little TV is okay. Opening up a book can bring you to a world of possibilities.
A book can inform you, make you smile, solve a mystery, and more. As you quietly read a little story, your brain imagines the story. What is the setting? What will happen? Who are they? While the gears in your brain go, you imagine the whole thing.
However, on the other hand, TV can inform, entertain, and tell stories like a book would, only that the screen moves as you watch. As you can see, both books and TV are good.
But unfortunately, the TV has its drawbacks. Too much TV is bad for your eyes, you won’t get much exercise, and you can become lazy. Books, however, let you imagine the story, let you pause when you need to stop, the list goes on. Famous people like J.K Rowling (author of Harry Potter), Barack Obama (44th president of the US), and Bill Gates (founder of Microsoft) and many more successful people are known for being voracious readers, which could be how it lead to their fame. Nevertheless, books can make one brighter, cleverer, and successful!
I believe, want, and know that everyone can pick up a good book and be sent to that world of possibilities. If everyone, tall and short, young and old, small and big, keep reading books, then our future may be brighter, better, and greater, all because of people who have read!
And that is my persuasive summary, ‘Why Books are better than Television’!
