ATTACHING LOVE TO READING IN CHILDREN: EFFECTIVE WAYS AND ERRORS
Reading is useful at any age, especially when it comes to children. As soon as the baby begins to get acquainted with the outside world, one should already begin to read children’s books to him. This will contribute to a better perception, accelerate the development process, and lay a love for print media. This is a lot of importance, since books are actively replaced by modern gadgets in the form of electronic devices.
Books for school children are no less useful. Reading contributes to the development of memory, memorization of grammar, and is also the main source of vocabulary replenishment. At what age should start buying children’s books? How to instill a love of reading? It is important to know this to any parent.
It is difficult to find a family where parents do not seek to teach their child to read, but this is far from being obtained by everyone. The reason for this may be several factors:
Earlier training. A 3-year-old reading kid is great, but at that age he is not ready to independently study the contents of books. Subsequently, this may result in an aversion to print media. During this period, parents can independently read to the child or consider vivid illustrations.
Late training. Paradoxical as it may seem, it is also not advisable to start acquaintance with children’s literature closer to school. This must be done much earlier.
The book is not age appropriate. It is very important to choose books for children according to their age. Bright tales are suitable for preschoolers, modern novels for teens. But it’s better to postpone the classics for later. Deviation from these rules may give the child an impression that the books are boring, and accordingly it will not be interesting to read them.
Forced reading. A child should only deal with books of his own free will.
