Books are important for so many reasons. They can teach us so many things. Books can transport us to a new place and give us a zillion friends. One of the fondest childhood memories that I have is of my grand-mother reading short stories to me from the weekly sunday newspaper. Those stories have still remained with me and have played a huge role in the overall development of my personality.

I have been reading to my son since he was just 3-4 months old. Some people thought that I was crazy and that my son didn’t really care/listen. However, I continued reading to my son.

Children always listen to us and we should never make the mistake of under-estimating their true potential.

I am glad that I didn’t listen to anyone and kept reading to my son. My son, Veer now is crazy for books and just wants me to keep reading to him.

I definitely am a proud mother.

In this article I will share with you all the books and authors that you must introduce to your child. These are books that I have used for my son and I have noticed a change in him. All these books have a great message and some beautiful illustrations.

Books are definitely the best gift that you can give your child.
