Tips to Make Your Children Close with Book

Familiarize them with the book

A child can consider a book as friend or a foe. Generally parents thrust the books on their child by telling them that they should read a book. But book reading should not be a compulsion. If a toddler is given a book everyday just like that then he consider that book like any other toy. He tries to glance through it trying to understand the meaning. He/she should be left alone with that toy. Now the book is his/her friend. As they grow we should start having designated time in which we read out a story to them. As parents are getting busier the child appreciates that the book reading time and consider it as a time spend with their parents. So they attach a positive memory with book reading. Thus thereby they know if they want some time with their parent, they would ask them to read the book. Now book has become their best friend. Like a famous quote by Winston S. Churchill “If you cannot read them, any rate…fondle them. Peer into them…let them fall open where they will,…Set them back on the shelf with your own hands…If they cannot be your friends, let them at any rate be your acquaintances.”

Understanding the child’s interest

In the world of social networking child does or wants what they like. We should try and find the interest of the child and find the books related to that. It is easier for children to read materials that interest them. As a matter of fact, if a child doesn’t like animals, it is almost impossible to get him to make any sense of the article he is reading. So the best way to start him on his literary journey is to find his interest, and once he has developed his interest of reading, he’ll become more interested in different areas. By then, he would have acquired a reading skill that will help him understand what he is reading.

Setting an example

If the child grows up in the house full of books there are more chances of being a book lover. Therefore the parents will have to set an example for them. They should be reading everyday so as the child also follows you.
Make it a fun & never ending experience!
Books have power to transport you to a magical world or hard-hitting reality with just some black and white words. And it has been proved again and again that children who read books have more fertile mind an thus perform better than their counterparts.

  • Treat the world of book reading a fun time.
  • Select right book for your child. You can select a series of books of their favorite characters from the fascinating world. Read fun books, exciting books and adventurous books to your children.
  • Involve the family in becoming the characters of the story. This will make them understand well.
  • Atmosphere can play a big role in developing a child’s interest in reading. You can also set the place and make the kids imagine that how the place would be where the story is going through.
  • One should not let the child read in his own mind. This makes their diction and pronunciation poor. Reading aloud is always recommended to kids as it makes them speak fluently.

As they say “Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read.” Books are and always remain man’s best friend. The way they are read can change but their importance will never diminish.
