In the past few months, the COVID-19 pandemic has gripped the entire world and made us bound to practice social distancing. It has also restricted kids from their routine outdoor activities. At the same time, social distancing has given an opportunity to parents and children to come closer and spend quality time together. This is an ideal time for parents to instil some good habits in their kids for which they did not get much time previously. One of these habits is book reading.
Parents must develop the habit of book reading among children at a young age as it improves creativity and knowledge, brings new ideas to young minds and also enhances vocabulary and language skills. Books are also a great way to keep children busy, especially during a time when going out is not a viable option. Considering all this, an issue which may be faced by some parents is making the right choice of books for their younger ones.
To recreate the magic of storytime with kids at home and make it easier for all parents to select the right book for their kids, we have selected our top children books for you.
