A few months after birth, a baby is noticing and reacting to stimuli. From this point on there are so many new things to take in and the learning process is non-stop. Reading books to your children is a valuable part of the cognitive development that they receive. But it is important that you get the book selection correct and it can be a very easy task.
With the correct selection of book, learning is essentially disguised as fun. Just thinking about your child’s personality and selecting a book that fits that is a good start. If your child likes a certain type of book or a certain author, continue to try these books out. Once your child has finished a book it is useful to get them to tell you their thoughts. When they describe what they think about the book, you can get a better idea of their preferences. This information is a valuable tool when you want to make right choices.
Fun isn´t the only benefit that reading can give to you. The development of language skills is enhanced through the reading of books. And to allow this process to happen, the correct choice in books is required. Reading a page or two of a book before you buy it to check words on a random page can assess the intellectual level of the book. If there are many words that your child will not understand, it can be too much. A word or two on each page is fine as it gives the opportunity for learning without overloading the brain.
Reading should be a fun and educational for the reader. Stimulation is the key to producing this fun and maintaining the interest in the book. Selecting a book that fits that criteria is a major step to selecting the correct book. Combining that with the information that you already know about your child, an easy decision can be made.
