 “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”

― Dr. Seuss, I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!

You can make the growing years of your child even more magical by introducing her to books. The world of books is a magical place where your child’s imagination evolves and creativity thrives.

‘The Secret Garden’ is a wonderful story that features an interesting protagonist. Goodreads.com gives the essence of this story as, “The gardens surrounding the large property are Mary's only escape. Then, Mary discovers a secret garden, surrounded by walls and locked with a missing key. One day, with the help of two unexpected companions, she discovers a way in. Is everything in the garden dead, or can Mary bring it back to life?”

Your kids will love ‘Amazing Grace’ and ‘I Am David’. Goodreads.com presents an interesting excerpt from ‘I Am David’: “David's entire twelve-year life has been spent in a grisly prison camp in Eastern Europe. But when he is given the chance to escape, he seizes it. With his vengeful enemies hot on his heels, David struggles to cope in this strange new world, where his only resources are a compass, a few crusts of bread, his two aching feet, and some vague advice to seek refuge in Denmark.”

Then there are ‘Grimm’s Fairy Tales’, the ‘Artemis Fowl series’ and the ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid’ for children of all ages. And do not forget the ever popular books by Enid Blyton such as ‘The Magic Faraway Tree’ series.
