5 ways to select the right books for your child.

🌺Avisha was introduced to books after she completed 1 year, but wasn’t that interested so I didn’t force her, wooden books always remained on her self and gradually she developed interest in them.
🌺Then came picture story books, she started liking those and it became a part of our routine.
🌺How to select the right books for your toddler?

📚 See what their interest lies in, if in case they like any particular cartoon character then pick a set of those books as it will build their interest in books. Also make sure to choose age appropriate books.

📚Get touch & feel books and water books they will be fascinated by the way the book looks. Texture & Appearance does play a vital role in bringing up a child.

📚 Make sure the books are colorful & has a lot of figures in it like a lot of different animals, different seasons etc.

📚 Also introduce them to flip flap books post 2 years, it will excite them to see what is hiding behind the flap.

📚 Get moral story books which will teach them a lesson by the end of the story.

🌺Our favorite 5 books are:

1-2 years

Board books was the only thing I got for her.  She still enjoys them, it is a set of 13 books.

2-3 years

I bought a lot of pre loved books from Instagram & Facebook pages.

We also started reading the series of Bernie & Bruno which made it easy for me to introduce Moral stories to her.
