Children books are the inspirers, motivators and informers for every child. However, there is no conclusive research which specifically states what is ideal for children in general. One can only base a decision on observation and offering the freedom of choice. Let them choose what is best for them.
Classic children books, ideal for cultivating the habit of reading
Children’s classic books are always appreciated, with their ability to bring back the pleasant memories of the bygone era. Take care of just a few things and you are sure to see fast results for your attempts in this direction. First and foremost, make sure that the book you present before them is abundant in colorful pictures. Your nearby library itself would be a huge collection of illustrative pictures capable of capturing the child’s imagination. Opt for books with great stories which are capable of making your children laugh. Another consideration which deserves your attention is the possibilities of making the children engaged in reading the book. This happens when you opt for a book with repeated phrases which the children fill the blanks to complete a story. And gradually, as they become older, move on to books with heroic characters performing adventures.
Allow children the freedom to choose
Even though classic children books are ideal for children, do not insist that they should limit their reading to these types just because you feel they would good for them. Take them to a library at a young age and allow them to take a membership card. The information that they have to return the books in time is capable of creating a sense of responsibility in them. And do not forget to complement them when they take the book to the library in the same condition when it had been at the time of receiving them.
Children books are vast and diverse, the best idea is to allow them to decide what is good for them instead of forcing your own thoughts and attitudes upon them.
