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

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