Finding the Right Books for Children

By: Jacob Marshal

Childhood marks the foundation of the life of anyone and it is the learning stage of a human being. Your children must be getting a lot of recommendations from their teachers as far as the reading is concerned. But the point of concern is, what are the right books for children? The answer solely depends upon the age of a child and his reading would be determined by his age group. Talking about the school going children, you can gift them interesting stories to read, which intrigues their imagination and invoke a thought process in them. Fairly tales like Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella, Snowhite and Seven Dwarfs and others are fine..

but you shouldn't do an excess of it. The better idea is to find something which is more realistic.

How about giving them novels like Nancy Drew or the famous five and the Hardy boys, which can also be quite interesting for your children? It might happen that initially he/she wouldn't show any interest in the real mysteries, because most of the children are dazed by those fairly tales. But it is better to shift their interest to these books now and then so that they are able to strike a balance between dreams and practicality. And in this way, you would also be able to judge the interest of your kid and would be able to understand him or her in a better way. It is not advisable to acquaint them with ghost stories and other such books as it might not put a very good impression on your child and result in making him/her more unrealistic and easily scared.

Harry Potter is one of the most popular novel which is not only popular with children but also with adults. You can give them some Harry Potters to read, and that might help in generating their interest in reading, which is one of the favourite passions of all times.
