Choose The Right Book To Give A Child

Mar 6, 2008
When it comes to giving to a child, the first things that come to mind are toys or books. Perhaps choosing a toy is easier than a book. There are certain things to keep in mind, when it comes to choosing the right book to give a child.

The first thing to consider is the age and gender of the child. After that, to know what the subject of the book should be. Perhaps it helps to speak with the parents of the child concerning the child's interests and hobbies. For example, if it is a male child, who is fascinated by cars and bikes, the book selected should contain pictures of these, and if the child is slightly older, then maybe written matter could accompany the pictures.

Understanding certain patterns in a child's growth helps to choose a book correctly. A child of 2-3 years sees a connection between pages and the story, pictures, and words. They love to have the book read to them repeatedly and they do not tire, as every time something new dawns on them. They love and enjoy books that carry colorful and attractive illustrations.

There are those books that help them anticipate and learn the next word, line and even an episode. They never seem to tire of the repetitions. These books normally have a large print and gradually the child also learns to follow and recognize each word as you read along.

Other choice of books could contain fairy tales, animal stories, epics, or fables as in Aesop's Fables or other relevant subject. One should preferably avoid the religious based books and definitely those that are adult in nature, which include violence and sex.

One book that helps a child to learn about the different months and seasons is 'Chicken Soup'. This book has a singsong rhyme tone and fun with simple illustrations.

The best way to select is to mention your requirements to the bookstore salesman, who will help you choose the right kind of book.

The age group that makes it the most difficult to select a book for are teenagers. Yet there is a wide range and choice of classic books and books by famous authors like Nancy Drew, Jane Austin, Mark Twain, and some others. You could also choose Hardy Boy series, The Secret Seven, Enid Blyton series and such others.

To help a child develop a love for reading is the best gift one could offer a child. You help give the child educational success and a worthwhile occupation at any time, and any place. Hence, choosing the right book will make a difference to the child. Give a child with the right book containing certain themes like the power of love to transform things, the value of good imagination, the strength to face the unknown and overcome difficult situations, to help make one's way through life.
