Less Leads to More Comprehension?

Today on Spark (CBC Radio) they shared a study done about e-books and children. What they found was animated e-books led to a decrease in comprehension compared to print or not-animated e-books. They also found that parents interacted/questioned less about the knowledge content with e-books (but discussed more about the interactive elements). What was interesting to me is that a similar study found similar results when looking at interactive (pop-up) paper books and regular paper books.
