One can never emphasise enough on the fact of how important it is for parents to inculcate the habit of reading amongst their children. Studies have shown toddlers/pre-preschoolers/ones already going to school and read every day, to have a wider spectrum of vocabulary when compared to their peers who don’t read at all. It has become imperative in today’s evolving times, that children understand adequately to formulate and communicate appropriately certain ideas fitting their age. Reading helps build children’s perception, while helping them explore different worlds, different belief systems and varied societies. Sharing my list of haring the recommended read for children between 3-14 yrs old.
