Why We Read
Books are source of knowledge. They are part and parcel of everyone’s life.
They come in different form in each household as novels/magazine for our adorable Moms, as study material/story books/novel for school and college going brothers and sisters, as a prayer/epic/religious books for our devoted Grandmoms and Granddads and of course they come in form of a newspaper providing the info regarding the things that happen around for our ever loving Dads.
Importance of reading
Inducing the art of reading in kids at a very young is very important to introduce them to the world around them in a playful way. About things we use and the things we see at home/school/park, relationships, feelings, language, animals, behaviors, good and bad habits.
And apart from the educational values they provide, through each little story we read to them we implant a Moral value woven into the stories by the writers, which is very essential to build in their inner self from a very young age.
It also helps the moms to spend valuable and enjoyable time with them by enacting and mimicking the characters of the story.
