Do you want to inculcate reading habits in your kids? The fundamentals of encouraging healthy reading habits in kids at an early age are reading with them at home. By reading together often or reading to them, your child will learn the joys of reading and get motivated to read.
Reading is a nourishing and fulfilling experience and enables kids to grasp new things at an early age. By listening to someone read; small babies are known to start to enjoy the sound of someone’s voice, change facial expressions, and even try to imitate the words. This activity is essential as it increases the attention span of kids as well.
Here are some Illustration and visual books to inculcate reading habits in kids:
