A child who reads will be an adult who thinks – Proverb

I have a passion for inspiring kids to become readers and be comfortable with books than being daunted.
Cultivating the habit of reading in early childhood has enormous benefits and plays a crucial role in child’s
cognitive, social, and emotional development. Reading regularly helps children to improve their vocabulary,
comprehension, critical thinking and enhances their communication and language skills leading to wider
awareness and academic success.

Book reading improves concentration, attention span, promotes cognitive development by stimulating the brain
and enhances problem-solving skills. Books expose children to delve into new world, ideas, and perspectives
thus fostering creativity and imaginative thinking. Reading lays the foundation for literary skills including
phonics, comprehension, and creative writing. Children who are exposed to reading early are more likely to
become great thinkers, proficient readers and writers later on.

Reading stories about different characters and situations help children understand and empathize with others. It
introduces them to diverse literature, cultures, fostering a sense of understanding and tolerance.
Reading together promotes bonding between parents and children. Children who enjoy reading are more likely
to seek out information and continue learning independently. Reading can serve as a form of relaxation,
reducing stress and promoting emotional well-being in children. It provides a healthy and constructive escape
from daily pressures.

Parents, caregivers, and educators play a crucial role in nurturing this habit by providing a rich and diverse
range of reading materials and creating a positive reading environment.
There are two gifts we should give to our children
One is roots, and other is wings
