Reading is one of the most important parts of the childhood. As a parent, you are your child’s first and most important teacher. When you help your child learn to read, you are opening the door to a world of books and learning.
Reading aloud to children is the best way to get them interested in reading. Before long they will grow to love stories and books. Eventually they will want to read on their own.
You may start wondering which books are the best for your child. It all depends on their age and the way booksellers tend to arrange their children’s departments, but they are not set in stone. Children develop at different rates and learn to read at different rates. A book we recommend for a three-year-old may equally be enjoyed by some eight-year-olds. Build your own home child’s library and let it grow bigger and better.
With time and help of parents, children can learn how to read and can practise reading until they can read for their own enjoyment. Then they will have a whole world of information and knowledge at their fingertips!
As one of the old proverbs says: What youth is use to, age remembers. Read as often as possible. It paves the way to success in school, which can build self-confidence and motivate your child to set high expectations for life.
