Why kids should be encouraged to read
As kids grow, many of them lose touch with the habit of reading and tend to spend more time on their mobile phones or laptops. Reading, however, plays an important role in improving your child’s speech and vocabulary. It broadens their worldview while boosting their emotional and mental well-being. Kids should be introduced to reading as early as possible to help them develop the habit. Parents can start by giving picture books to kids to get them interested. Along with western authors, get your child to also read books by Indian publishers.
