The Wonderful World Of Books

KIDS
A book is not only a companion but also a source of great knowledge. We might be living in a time where computers and the Internet have become the source and means of people’s entertainment and knowledge, but the wonderful world of books is still alive and well. During the first years of a child’s life, we, as parents, are providing our little ones with lots of different stimuli.

Books are the number one educational tool and children, as little as a few months old, they are fascinated by the colours and textures of a book. Babies might chew, throw or turn a book around but this will be the beginning of a long lasting journey to becoming a successful reader.

Here’s why you should encourage kids to read and how the wonderful world of books helps in shaping up their life:

  • Reading improves a child’s vocabulary and leads to more highly-developed language or social skills. A book provides a child with valuable vocabulary, starting from simple basic words all the way to making sentences and expanding their diction
  • Reading books stimulates and helps kids to create their own world of imagination. While reading the brain translates the descriptions we read of people, places and things into pictures
  • Books help in the development of empathy in kids. Being engrossed in a story stimulates emotions. We identify with the character in the story and hence, one can empathize with the character
  • Children who read do better at school. They do better at all subjects and they do better all the way through school. Different types of books offer children wider knowledge and experience
  • A book can be a great form of entertainment and can replace the Television and computer for a good part of the day. The constant movement, flashing lights and noise which bombard our senses when we’re watching TV, looking at a computer or playing an electronic game are actually quite stressful for our brains. Take some time-out
  • Lastly, the routine of reading a book with your child, at bedtime or at any other time, is emotionally nourishing and creates a long lasting bond. In addition, a parent can give examples of everyday life to the child that relates to the story. In this way, the child can recognize different situations as it grows up, and be better prepared to deal with or understand them

Time, spent with children by the book ‒ reading, telling stories, talking … ‒ is a quality time. Books provide inspiration, thought and reflection. It relaxes the body and calms the mind. Treasure every book you read and read often!

A Thanksgiving Note!

1-10

Happy Thanksgiving!

Instilling a sense of gratitude in kids is very important. Gratitude goes beyond good manners. It is a mindset and a lifestyle. What better way to show gratitude than by saying a simple ‘Thank You”! Studies shows that kids who are grateful towards the smallest of things, reap concrete benefits, including greater life satisfaction and better attitude about school.

Toddlers and preschoolers are by nature self-centered. It is important and tricky to teach them gratitude. Here’s how you can teach your kids to be grateful and find happiness in the smallest of things

  • Kids learn from what they see around them. Be a grateful parent. It goes without saying that we love our kids, and that we’re thankful beyond words for their love, their smiles, their hugs and so much more. It is an invaluable exercise to tell your kids how grateful you are to have them
  • Set a good example by saying “thank you” sincerely and often. The values our kids embrace as they get older aren’t those we nag them into learning, but the ones they see us living out. There are countless opportunities every day for us to model gratitude for our kids — for example, thanking the waitress who serves your food, etc. When our kids see us expressing sincere thanks all the time, they’ll be more inclined to do so as well
  • Most religious traditions emphasize the practice of gratitude through acknowledging blessings and through serving others. Attending regular religious services is one way for kids to gain a sense of gratitude as part of a community. Spirituality and gratitude go hand in hand
  • Keep your eyes open for situations that eloquently illustrate the act of thankfulness. When kids can connect the concept of gratitude to a real-life situation, the lesson we’re teaching will be much more likely to stick
  • When kids complain or gripe, it can be helpful to try to find a response that looks on the brighter side. This instills a positive perspective in your kids and helps them find the silver lining
  • Insist on politeness and respect all around. When we teach our children to treat others with dignity and respect, they’ll be more likely to appreciate the ways in which those folks contribute to and improve their lives. We need to model for our kids the importance of treating everyone with respect
  • Encourage your kids to experience the “joy of giving”! The old saying “it’s better to give than to receive” has stuck around for a reason. It really does feel great to help someone else out
  • Have a moment of thanks each day when everyone shares something they’re thankful for. Whether the list includes a favorite toy, a lesson, or a meeting new people, this daily tradition can help develop a positive frame of mind

Now that we have given you few simple and quick ways to teach your kids to be thankful and see the brighter and positive side of life, as adults it is also our responsibility to show gratitude towards life and people. This thanksgiving be thankful for every breath you take, every food you eat, every new day you wake upto…

A thank you to all our wonderful readers!
