Reading has always been one of my biggest hobbies. Ever since I was a little kid my mother used to read ne stories and fairytales. When I turned three years old I opened up for myself a fascinating world of children’s literature.
It always amazed me how these printed letters can make whole worlds appear in your mind. By reading a book you can go anywhere, live anyone’s life, possess superpowers you never had. I think it’s extremely important that parents start teaching their kids how to read from the very young age. Books play not only entertaining but also educational part in children’s lives. Personally I learned a lot from the books I read when I was a child. It really broadens your mind and boosts you creativity and imagination.
Nowadays there are hundreds of thousands books for kids, some of them are world famous like Harry Potter or Chronicles of Narnia. A few generations of kids were raised on these series and they proved to be real masterpieces by that. There are also lots of modern authors who are totally worth checking out. Who knows, maybe in a few years one of them will became globally famous?
I think that it’s parents’ job to pick books for their kids to teach them right things through these books. If parents choose literature from the very beginning wisely, it will help a lot with further education of their child. It’s not a good idea to underestimate the impact that literature has on children. It can play a destructive role as well, so when the kid is just beginning his journey to this amazing world of stories, his parents should check what he is reading.
Reading is one of the best things human kind ever created and it is important for parents to make sure that their children completely understand all the perks of it and that this time spending will eventually become one of their favorite.
