Book reading is one of the healthiest workout for our brain and the best habit to develop. Now, as our kids are heading towards school going age, now it’s time to teach and encourage them to read by themselves. Book reading is very important for their developments and growth and here I am sharing some amazing benefits and importance of reading for kids to motivate them, so that they can develop the habit of book reading in their everyday life.
UNDERSTANDING THE SURROUNDING ENVIRONMENT
Books are just like toys, a perfect medium for our little kids to peek through and see and understand their surroundings and everything happening around.
Books don’t have words but have places and wonderful imagination for our kids to visit, explore and learn from.
LANGUAGE & VOCABULARY DEVELOPMENT
When we read to our kids and when they started reading by themselves, they learn to pronounce different words and develop a huge pool of vocabulary in their brain which will help them in doing their best in their academic and practical life and even if they read their books to their dolls or teddies they learn new words and vocabulary.
CONFIDENCE AND SPEAKING POWER
Reading books build confidence in our kids as they become better and better in knowledge and vocabulary, this will help them in developing a great speaking power in front of people and helps them going their best in academic and extracurricular activities.
IMAGINATION & CREATIVITY
Book reading helps our kids in development of better imagination power and creativity. Whenever they read a fiction, non-fiction, science or book of any type, they make a imaginative film with characters in their mind and then they enjoy reading their film and this will help them in developing a better creativity and thinking power, as they can get different ideas and thoughts about any specific character or scenario.
A reader live thousands of lives before he dies but a person who never read, live only one life.
To keep our body fit and healthy, we need regular exercise and activity. Well, books are the best work out for our brain and are “a must” for our brain’s growth and development.
We often notice that our kids don’t want to concentrate on one thing and they always want to do so many things at a time. Well, books reading is one of the best exercise to boost concentration ability on one specific task at a time when needed, as book reading disconnects our mind with the surrounding world for sometime.
Book reading provides a huge boost in knowledge for our kids, knowledge that they miss during their everyday life and school times. It teaches them about things in the surrounding world, about past and about future as well.
Your Wealth and Money can be stolen, but your knowledge is yours and no one can steal it. The more you share your knowledge, the more it grows.
EMPATHY AND MANNERS
When our kids read in the book about poors, needies, helping others in need and how the certain character character interacts and helps other, this will teach them the value of life, respect, empathy and manners also.
SHARING AND RESPECTING OTHER’S IDEAS
Reading books in a group or sharing books with friends and then discussing with one another about the lessons and ideas, helps our kids to learn about sharing, taking care of other’s property and how to respect and value the point of view of others even if it differs from you, this will not only teach our kids empathy but also teamwork.
