Fun Time Is Reading Time

Reading time


Today, I am going to introduce you to a new world by telling you the importance of reading. A book is a dream that you hold in your hands. Whenever you read a good book, it will either increase your knowledge imaginary power.

I began reading extra books when I was in the second grade. I use to get fascinated with the pictures and the words forming beautiful stories. I was in habit to collect the books to read them. Actually I must admit that the habit of reading is  my mom’s gift. When mom use to go to market and she ask me to stay home and then the only bribe I ask for is the story book  & she bring for me every time. Slowly and steady family members started calling me a certified book addict.

During vacations,my goal was to read as many as book as possible. Every year I raised my goals and I feel in love with this hobby that I had developed.

You all should know that a book is a device that ignites concentration, Understanding, speaking , vocabulary, imagination and learning. It’d  be as if your brain has been upgraded. Wait, I have one liner perfect for this occasion-“Turn Off the TV and read a book. It’s called thinking outside a box”.

I want to pass this habit of reading books to my kids as well.

Introducing books to my kids

I have two kids and both are different in nature and interest. When my daughter was  2 year old, I introduce her to some books which were touch and feel book and first library actually a set a of mini 10 books which has  picture and words.

I always ask her to choose the book and most likely she handover me a animal book where there are animals, I use to name each animal and make sound of animal. She love the sound and want me to repeat the same. She soon learned recognizing  animals and their sound . Then we start doing rhyming. My daughter has very good catchy power  . Now a days she is fascinated with princess stories like Cinderella , Rapunzel story and princess and the pea   and after reading them she want to act a drama on them. I never stop my princess and participate too in her imagination .

Now she turn 7 years and she has  lot of stories books to read, encyclopedia to explore new world. She love reading and she keep on adding new book to her book treasure.

Story of My young babies

Tips on Reading to your Baby

    Reading is a good habbit always, for kids and for us too. There was a time when I cant think of a day without book and now I dont get time. Even I am so unlucky that I cant even read while travelling because I have motion sickness.
    But children love the colors, images and they enjoy the reading.

    I introduced books early to my son ..I think he was just few months old at that time. He used to look at pictures and then I also introduced English stories and rhymes which he really enjoyed as well. Now he is 4 yrs old and always gets few books from library every week for new stories so I could read for him. He also loves to listen to a story from his chosen book before bedtime.
