Unknown, ParentcircleParentCircle

“′Classic′—a book which people praise and don't read.”

― Mark Twain

Reading books can not only be entertaining but also educational. Parents can instil in their kids a love of reading by introducing them to books from an early age.

Have an enjoyable time with your children when you read them ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’. Here is an excerpt of the book from goodreads.com: “Poor Duncan just wants to color. But when he opens his box of crayons, he finds only letters, all saying the same thing: We quit! Beige is tired of playing second fiddle to Brown. Blue needs a break from coloring all that water, while Pink just wants to be used. Green has no complaints, but Orange and Yellow are no longer speaking to each other.”

Read your little darlings wonderful stories by Ridyard Kipling. You can begin with ‘Just So Stories’. From goodreads.com, “Twelve stories about animals, insects, and other subjects include How the Camel Got His Hump, The Butterfly That Stamped, and How the Alphabet Was Made.”

Then there are wonderful stories for young readers like ‘The Velventeen Rabbit’, ‘Pinocchio’ and ‘Pumpkin Soup’. ‘The Little Prince’ by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry is a popular book among children. “Moral allegory and spiritual autobiography, The Little Prince is the most translated book in the French language,” we learn from goodreads.com.

Your girls and boys will both love the story of Eragon, which begins in the ‘Eragon (The Inheritance Cycle #1)'. In total there are four books in the series, full of dragons, dragon riders and fascinating adventures.
