Right Books for Your Child

(0 reviews)

You know that reading to your child is important. To keep your child interested in reading you need to choose the right books according to your child’s interest and understanding.

Thursday, May 11th, 2017

Here are some tips that will help you choose the right books from book store or library:

Books with little text

Select books with fewer words or with rhythmic words. Choose books of your kid’s interest, such as animals, children or families.

Books about your toddler’s daily activity

Young toddlers below 2 years generally like board books with pictures of their day-to-day activities, such as bedtime, bath or mealtime or saying hello and goodbye topics.

Older toddlers above 2 years of age understand the activity of reading, hence, they love repetitive or rhyme books that are easy to remember so that they can read along.

Create your own handmade books by sticking magazine cut outs and writing simple sentences that your toddler would love to hear about.

Books with various textures

Kids love books with variety of textures, fold-out books, vinyl or cloth books. Thick board books with vibrant colours and simple pictures are good choice for your kid.
Books that have interactive elements such as movable parts, mirror works attract your child easily.

Other types of books

Homemade books, scrapbooks or photo albums of known people can also make an interesting read. Poetry and songbooks are also good selection for your kid.

Read to your child in a way that it becomes a fun-filled learning and bonding experience.
