“The man who does not read has no advantage over the man who cannot read.”

― Mark Twain

Inculcating good reading habits is a must in all children. Although we live in a time where computers and Internet have become the primary sources of knowledge, books still play an important role. The routine of reading a bedtime story to your children creates an emotional bond and provokes the children’s curiosity. Picture books help in developing a taste for art in children. Sitting down to read a story book makes children calm and quiet. Browsing through the pages of a book helps children understand the concepts of printing, like left to right, top to bottom.

Countless books are available for children of all ages and preferences. Introduce your children to popular books that can enrich their childhood and growing years.

Start young by introducing your children to books like The Very Hungry Caterpillar or Where The Wild Things Are. Teach your children values like kindness and sympathy with the story of Black Beauty. Tickle the imagination of your children by transporting them into a world of magic and fantasy through The Chronicles of Narnia.

Preteens can enjoy books like Matilda, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Books by Roald Dahl and Lewis Carroll are filled with a sense of adventure and charming characters.

For older children, there is The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien and Goodnight Mister Tom by Michelle Magorian and the poignant War Horse by Michael Morpurgo.
