Educational Children Books

How to teach your child how to read a book?

Teaching a child how to read starts from a very early age rather than prior to admitting a child to school and you concern on teaching them how to read at that time. As parent, our responsibility is to educate our children from new born till they become grown-ups. I understand very well that each one of us have full time jobs and busy with all the other house hold chores which is quite normal to all of us. By prioritizing our tasks and by scheduling our events, we could get everything done and have time to read books for our baby.

Reading to a new born baby:

If we start reading to our child when they are newly born, gradually our words through books changes into visuals for them by practicing reading consistently and by showing them. Like this when they go to school, they will already be prepared for what is coming next in their lessons.

Example:

My son was exposed to books at a very early age. By 9 months he was able to point finger the right alphabet and bring it for me. For instance if I asked him to bring me litter “K” he knew already where to find it. We used to play games of blocks. The blocks were for number recognition as well as alphabets. The game was that I used to call a number or an alphabet 5 to ten times but within a few seconds time gap and used the tone like singing sweetly for him. He used to try to imitate the same way, find the block and point finger for me while imitating.

Objective of the example:

These kinds of games are not only engaging but also very much helpful for your child’s reading skills at that early age. A child who is brought to school without practicing reading since early ages are most likely to have learning difficulties than those who are exposed in reading since very early ages i.e. (new born). The more early you start practicing reading with your child, the better it would be during their first years of school.

What kinds of books would you recommend for your child, for starting?

You could start with some educative and positive books in order to deliver the right message to your baby. Through books, you would choose what message to deliver so that your baby adapt that as an unforgettable and un stolen quality and attitude which will then be like a valuable treasure for them. Remember to choose the book which could deliver that quality message to your baby. Do not let scary books, rude books, insulting and negative books near your baby. If any member of the family is reading those kinds of books near your baby, ask them politely to step away from the baby or read with themselves only. Not aloud because you wouldn’t want those kinds of message to be delivered to your baby.

Importance of reading books in baby’s early ages:

The early age is critically essential for your baby’s brain development, moral development, which values you would want them to grasp from you, your culture and your manners. Once they grow with these good qualities and values, they will be un undefeatable in their school times, with their social life and bonding with their friends.

If you have a solid bond with your baby, it will empower and strengthen their personality in their social life. They will be able to trust people and will not be afraid of trusting people in order to not to get hurt by people.

When to start teaching your baby by showing images?

baby reaches the ages of 6 months, you could start reading books by pointing with your fingers towards the images. You could do so with sweet and very soft and interesting voice in order to grasp your baby’s attention and keep them interested in your reading and similarly to other activities. Do so when you are having that fresh energy peak of the day. Some people’s energy peak is at night when they feel like they can bring down the mountain. Some people’s energy peak is in the early morning who are also called early birds.

Quality reading techniques:

When you are doing so in a time when you are stressed or had a long day of work, your stress and fatigue could deliver subconsciously through the tone of your voice to your baby. I am sure you would not want to do that. That’s why I suggested reading when you are at your energy peak so that the quality of your message as to what you want to deliver, should be properly and effectively grasped by your baby. Through repetition and building a good routine, they can learn how to read eventually and will be ready for school in no time.

Results of reading in children:

Children who are good book readers, they are the ones who have the highest IQ. They are good in general knowledge. They learn very easily with no difficulties. Reading could also help them with their brain process and decrease any chances of mental health issues.

People who are exposed to TV or any other digital objects are the ones who will then suffer from learning difficulties. For watching TV they only need to look at it and listen, they do not need any effort like trying to read. That is why by this habit and by passage of time, they become lazy to try to read books.

This page includes very beneficial information that parents can utilize to teach their kids how to read. I also really like how this page doesn’t just include “text” education but also “visual and auditory” modes of learning which is good. Keep up the good work!

    1. Ohh thank you so much! Educational children books are very helpful tools for our children’s learning. 

      It is always more advantageous for our children to adapt and get the habit of reading books. 

      Books are everyone’s best friend if one gets used to reading it.

  2. Thanks for sharing this actually I’m happy to find your website since I have a website related with children’s.

      Thank you also for sharing it. I really appreciate that. Yeah me too when I first started to become a parent with my first child, I needed tons of information to know and find out about things in particular. I am sure there will be still some who are starting just like once I did. 

      I am glad we have good sources handy within the article to benefit you all.

  3. I am a fan of toys that help kids with development, very interesting never knew the head and neck movement was linked to the size of the skull which leads to the growth of brain cells and tissue. It’s interesting how they figure out hard from soft, so for the most part when you see them putting stuff to their mouth, they are experimenting. Great information here.

  4. Hello Meena, 

    This is a lovely article and I compliment you for writing it so meaningfully. I have always been a voracious reader and adopted the concept that when we had children, there were books accessible to them at their height level, starting with the floor. 

    My kids have always read books, as I believe that’s where true learning and maturity come from. It’s only through reading that you can shed your inhibitions and learn to think for yourself.

    Regards,

    Aparna

  9. Hey Meena,

    You have tackled a very important topic on your website. Child education at an early age is very important to boost child interest and intellect which is been neglected by many young parents. Also by showing the child toys with different colors after the age of 4-5 months very important to improve the child’s reaction and senses. Reading to a child at an early age makes him recognize the sound of different words which can lead to child development in school. I have really enjoyed reading your topics. Best of luck

    1. Hello Dhia,

      Thank you very much for your time and for reading through the article. I appreciate your comment and your valuable inputs. Yes, early childhood education is in deed very important as the whole life of our little ones depend on that. Right tools and toys do have the effectiveness on the right age as this is a very playful but educative means to be used for stimulating the senses of our baby. 

  10. Hello there!

    That is really an amazing brand and the review on it is super thorough and wonderful. I really would recommend these educational baby toys to guardians and parents. Toys like this will really help these kids improve in their intellectual abilities and tend to become more brilliant as the day go by.

    Thanks for sharing that.

  11. I remember a letter game I was bought in New York. For each letter of the alphabet an animal whose name starts with the one letter in question would be drawn in a very nice way. My daughter is 18 now but I still cherish that game.

    She loved it as a toddler cause it appealed so much to what kids at early age like.

    I believe like you do one cannot start enough. Language skills are essential and the best weapon for a successful time in school and life.

  12. Thanks for your beautiful article on educating children with books. We read much and often to our first-born, and she could read before she started school. Children are like sponges and will absorb the environment they grow up in. I love the idea of keeping good reading material around for your kids.

    1. Hey Carolyn,

      Thank you very much for your comment. I appreciate your time and reading this article.

      Thank you for sharing your experience with the rest of us. That’s how we learn! From each other.

  13. Good day Meena! This is a very interesting article on educational children books. I’m getting knowledge from this too. I have two kids and this would have such a great impact on them. I didn’t like reading when I was a kid and I think it has affected my kids too. How ever, I’m going to force it on them and make it a culture because it will broaden their thinking generally. Thank you for sharing this 

    1. Hey Lizzy,

      Thank you very much for your comment and for your time in reading this article. I really appreciate you.

      I am glad you found it helpful and useful. That is what my purpose in creating these articles were to be able to help all parents, specially our new parents.

      Have a wonderful time!

      Meena

  14. I love this wonderful informative article. I like the conversation writing pattern which always creates a discussion with the reader. Most of the time we are telling stories but in this article, the author’s suggestion was to start with these skills with storybooks. Even a 9-month-old infant can do that.

    Reading books is such a good habit and we can start this with a toddler by showing pictures. That is the interesting point in this article to me. the video embedded in this article also very helpful to the additional content.

    Thanks for sharing this valuable article.

    1. Thank you very much for your time and your comment. I truly appreciate your time and effort in reading the article.

      I am glad you found it interesting. I really appreciate your kind words.

      You’re most welcome!

  15. A lot of our parental responsibilities are neglected on the claim that we are busy. One of such is teaching our children to read. We made the mistake with our first child, but when the second came we corrected we started sing and reading to him when he was in the womb. From pregnancy to been a toddler we kept singing and reading to him. Today, he is very different. 

    1. Hello Parameter,

      Thank you very much for your time in reading the article and writing a comment. I appreciate that.

      You are very true. As a new parent we could make unknown mistakes as we are not aware of certain things or sometimes we are aware but it could be because of lack of experience. For sure we learn with time.

      Thank you for sharing your experience with the rest of us.

      Wish you a wonderful journey of parenting!

  16. Wow this has been a very insightful article indeed. Even though I don’t personally have any children, my mom is still popping out babies lol ad this is great! I will be sending this to her as I’m sure she will be very interested in finding a new way to educate the kids right now that COVID season is among us. thank you so much for this awesome article

    1. Thank you very much for your comment and for your time to read the article. I appreciate that.

      Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I am glad you found it interesting. 

      Thank you also for sharing it to your loved ones. That means a lot to me.

      Best of luck!

  17. Thank you for the informative article. The importance of reading for the kids and stimulating their minds without putting any form of pressure upon them cannot be overemphasized. It is one of the best ways to raise lovers of leaning and independent learners. It must be a must do to replace long hours spent on gadgets.

    1. You’re most welcome. Thank you for reading through the article and offering a comment. I really appreciate your time. Yeah, sure you are right. Learning is fun when the child is taught in a playful environment. 

  18. I agree completely with your message. Children should be encouraged to learn from an early age. They enjoy learning and are like little sponges soaking up everything they can.

    I did this with my children and still do it with my grandchildren. If you can instil a love of books into a child, their years of education will be so much easier. The more they read the more they learn.

    Good article, thank you, I enjoyed it.

    1. Thank you very much for your comment. I appreciate your time in reading and offering a comment.

      You’re absolutely right! Thank you so much for sharing your experience with all of us, regarding the importance of reading books for our baby in their early ages. 

      The importance of reading books to babies can not be overemphasized. Reading in childhood, decreases the rates of school drop outs during high school and collage studies.

      Blessings to you all along with your grand children!

      Meena 

  19. Thanks for sharing this here. I feel that a lot Kore goes into teaching the kids how to read and pronunciation too. Having educational books that are interesting with tasks involved makes things a lot more easier for them and that is good to see here. Thanks for sharing this and easing the work of parents alter too. Thanks for sharing.

  20. This is a good post and these are really good books that you wrote out for us to use to help our kids with reading. They are really education on different topics. I agree with you on your point at the beginning of this post about making sure that we help our kids read at an early stage. My kids are 5 months old now and I will start from right now.

    1. Thank you very much for your time and your comment on the article.

      I am glad you found it engaging and helpful. It is a very good thing that you considered starting it with your own babies. I am very happy that it helped you in a way and of course thank you for sharing your experience with us.
