Books are a great medium to develop various skills in kids. And for both my kids, I have built a small home library. They pick the books of their choice and read. Not only it helps in building their language and vocabulary skills, books also make them think better and different. And I kee rotating and introducing new books quite often to make reading a fun and interesting experience for them. Now that they can write, they are developing a habit of writing new words they found in the books and we discuss about them. At the end of the week, we go through all the new words. Some of our absolute favourites which kept both of them glued to pages are shared here.
