Growing up amidst books is a wonderful thing. Having easy access to books in one’s living space has umpteen benefits, not just for kids but also adults. If you can, maintaining a small home library in your living area can make sure your kids develop an affinity towards books. There are several types of books that you can expose your child to, at different stages of their development— home education packs, home-schooling books, or simply children’s story books designed for their cognitive growth. We recommend that parents ensure such an environment for their kids, and for good reason.
The more you expose your kids to books, the more it will cut their screen time. Secondly, age-appropriate books (we have specific collections for kids aged 0-5, right up to age 14) will help your child’s cognitive development. You may also be able to get them to develop an early interest in science, math, or literature which might help them find their calling in life. It helps enhance your vocabulary, reduces stress, helps lower your blood pressure, and even helps you manage your emotions better. Reading before bed helps you prepare for a better night’s sleep whilst electric devices with screens emit light that could potentially hurt your sleep pattern.
