The Gift of Reading

Do your kids curl up in front of television shows during weekends? Reading a book is any day better than watching television. Exposure to books and to reading should be an integral part of every child’s daily routine.

Do your kids ask you endless questions about where they came from and why the rainbow is colorful? Keep that sense of curiosity and wonder alive in their little minds. Encourage them to look up answers to their questions in dictionaries, encyclopedias, books of facts and every other reference book that they can get hold of.

Do libraries really help children be more successful in life? You bet. It is a well known fact that children who grow up with a love for books have improved attention spans, better concentration, self confidence, good linguistic skills and well developed minds. Libraries provide children with information and resources not available at home. They also help you find the right books for your children at every age.

The new Schoolkutti.com children’s library has a wide collection of books by popular children’s authors of all times. We plan to offer a variety of fun events for children from time to time – story telling, reading aloud, puppet shows, magic performances and much more.

We will also keep your kids motivated to read with contests like the Reader of the Month and the Best Book Review of the Month.

Choose the best gift for your child – the Joy of Reading!

Developing a love for reading : The best gift for your child

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
― Dr. Seuss
As a parent, it is your important to start your kid on a lifelong love of reading. Reading is not only a good hobby to pass time. It has a whole lot of benefits, some of which are building vocabulary, fostering creativity, boosting self confidence, relieving stress, improving memory and knowledge. You should play the biggest role in helping your children to become interested in reading and in fostering their reading skills since you are your child’s first and most important teacher. Reading to your child, helping him or her select books appropriate for his or her age, establishing a reading time, taking your child to libraries and reading clubs etc are some of the ways you can help develop their reading interest and skills.

Access to a library full of engaging books inspires children to read, learn and explore. We have some good libraries for children in the city, check out the list at Libraries. Periodic family visits to the libraries can go a long way, so make it part of your regular routine.

Reading alone is wonderful, but joining a reading club gives your child a chance to meet kids of similar tastes and experience books in a whole new way. Discussing and sharing thoughts on a book can open up different viewpoints and valuable insights. We have put together a list of reading clubs in the city here
Reading Clubs.

So enjoy reading with your child, there’s sure to be many interesting books around for your little bookworm’s taste.
