Books for Children - Tips - Where to Begin


To instill the love of reading in your children is one of the very first thing parents wanted to do. Once a child begins to read at an early age, the tendency is that he will have the love of reading for the rest of his life.

The child who have the love for read usually do better in school because of the fact that reading any type of book will be easier for them. School textbooks may be dry and not much fun to read, but it will be easier for a child who loves to read to get their assignments completed. The best way to get your child started is to buy some books for children at an early age.

You can start buying some books for children earlier than you might think. To begin with, you can start with picture books that children can handle as young as six months old. Even though they may not even understand what it is about, it will give them a positive association with books. Many of these books for children are soft, have bright, stimulating colors, and can be chewed on safely.

As your children age, the books for children you buy will begin to involve words as well as pictures. One of my daughter's first books was a picture book of other babies. Children are often fascinated with other children their own age. The book had very few words, but it helped her to understand that words tell a story, and the pictures in the books go with the story. When children reach age three or four, you can purchase more complicated books for children. They can have longer storylines, and they should encourage your child to ask questions. Rhyming stories are great, because they engage your child's mind in learning and understanding patterns and sounds.

You can find books for children just about anywhere you buy books. Many bookstores have special sections just for books for children, and they often have extras like a play area, and they may also have story time. You can also find them at the library, and the library will have story time as well. These programs are geared towards getting your children to develop a love of books that will last a lifetime.

It is one of the best things you can develop in them. To begin with, you may start a book sharing program with some of families and friends. Eventually you can start one of these for your community. This will not only encourage people to share or donate books for children to the community, it will also help lower income families give their children the love for reading.

How Can I Encourage My Child To Read?

"The majority of reading problems faced by today's adolescents and adults could have been avoided or resolved in the early years of childhood."
--National Research Council (1998)

As a parent of a young child, you are probably more concerned about your child's progress in reading than in any other subject taught in school. ... In other words, children must learn to read before they can read to learn.

Make a book for Grandpa
