Reading books helps children in enhancing their learning and listening skills. Reading also develops language skills along with verbal communication. It helps them to become friendly with their books and also gain knowledge from them.

Too many Americans are incapable to read above a sixth-grade level and even more prefer not to read. Yet,Guest Posting if kids are exposed to reading at an early age, they are more likely to make it a part of their adult life. As parents, it is our duty to be role models for literacy – begin reading to kids when they are toddlers, convey the value of reading to raise their budding thoughts, and show a love for the written word.
Countless books are now produced in “board book” format, making them almost permanent, and many books are illustrated with multicolored pictures that request to the youngest “reader.” Kids’ books can be found in libraries and thrift stores so every kid can have the experience of holding a book in his hands.

Suggestions by pre primary teacher training course for Reading to Your Child
Reading a story is more than just speaking the words on a page. Reading is a conversation, a conversation between you, your kid, and the characters in the story.  Promote discussion and communication by pointing out the pictures in the book and by allowing them to activate your kid’s imagination. Look for ways to promote your kid to convey his thoughts and feelings about situations in the book and how he might relate these situations to his own life. These types of experiences teach your kid that a book is his friend, a friend that provides a gateway to stimulating and fascinating people and places.

Choosing Appropriate Books by early childhood education
What kinds of books are suitable for your young kid? Screen books by evaluating age suitability, length, subject matter, the quality of the pictures and/or illustrations, and whether you think you would like reading it again and again. The book should confront your kid just enough to interest her curiosity and arouse the chat of new ideas. And remember that kids enjoy funniness and silliness. While books that encourage movies and TV shows may be popular, be careful in making these choices. These books can sometimes be poorly written, and fairy tales are best saved for older kids who won’t be frightened by wicked villains.
There is at present a tendency toward writing kids’ books on subjects such as divorce, death, illness and disability, homosexuality, teen abuse, racism, blended families, and other societal issues. These books can be helpful if you need to talk about these topics with your kid. However, if your kid is not facing such an issue, reading these types of books may cause your kid to be anxious or have questions that you may not prepared to answer.
If any book proves to be boring or unsuitable, you are not required to finish reading it. Put it away for a few months or give it to another kid. If your kid really loves a book, he’ll ask you to read it over and over. If you do, you will inspire a passion for reading that will last a lifetime.
