Books are the best way to develop imagination and creative thinking in kids. Here we have prepared a bucket list of the best books for kids of all ages. These books act as a portal that allows your kids to discover new realities and make their imaginations fly.

A good read benefits children in many ways, they experience a range of emotions and acquire skills and knowledge which helps in their cognitive development. Let me share my experience with books.

It’s because of books I am who I am today!!! I am grateful to my parents for reading books to me and that’s the most memorable part of my childhood. No matter how late my dad reached home, he never skipped the reading time with me.

I used to wait for that part of the day eagerly not because I got to explore the different worlds in my books or know different serious, funny, positive, and dark characters along with life lessons and beautiful messages; but interesting conversations arising from those stories.

Sometimes, my interpretation would differ from that of my parents and they would laugh out loud at my thought process.

Why Reading Is Important?

It is said that books are our best companions. Books are our friends in a real sense. Once your child starts reading, they experience a whole new world. Apart from a healthy pastime, the habit of reading develops language skills, vocabulary, and also memory skills in children.

Hi there! I'm just a normal person enjoying the process of life. Practicing Buddhism, I believe in the law of cause and effect. Reading and writing is always a pleasure. I enjoy researching on a range of subjects – science, psychology, and technology. Nothing can satiate my soul than good music, horror movies, psycho-thriller, and crime stuff. I enjoy photography, music and watching comedy videos. Talking to people, learning new experiences, sharing my knowledge through blogs, motivating others are things that I always look forward to.View Author posts
