Why children’s books deserve more appreciation📚

Are books going out of fashion?

With all the technology that is now available on the market, books seem to be a second thought rather than a priority.

Especially for the next generation.

As a blogger I rely on technology to ensure that my content is seen however as a mother, technology is something I’d rather keep to one side at least for now.


Here’s why we should all make a little more time for books;

Reading aloud to your child from birth is stimulating and eases your baby into recognizing communication and social skills from the start.

As they grow, reading to them, only becomes even more beneficial. With every story their imagination and creativity grows. They are able to understand and develop emotions such as empathy. They will begin to identify with the characters situations and feel what they’re feeling in the stories told.

When you are reading to your little ones you are only investing in them. By reading to them you allow them to absorb knowledge and enhance their language and concentration skills.

“There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate’s loot on Treasure Island.” – Walt Disney


Other than being educational and entertaining, reading together with your offspring is also a massive bonding activity.

If you’re like me and are constantly on the go, working, cooking, cleaning, whatever it may be, taking some time out, sitting down with your little one, reading and communicating with one another can be the perfect thing to wind down together and have some serious bonding time!

If that doesn’t convince you to read more with your children I don’t know what will!

“There are many little ways to enlarge your world.  Love of books is the best of all.”
– Jacqueline Kennedy

Happy reading📖

  6. I absolutely agree with you. Reading to your kids is such a great thing to do for so many reasons. It builds a love of books that will translate into them reading on their own later on. My favorite books when I was younger was anything written by Marguerite Henry.
