Books--A Child’s Learning Tool

By Penelope Blair

Learning new words, building confidence and exploring the world around them, nothing impacts a child’s learning like the magic of books. Reading with children stimulates their brain development and improves language skills, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Reading books also allows children to embark on a journey of creative discoveries and a lifetime love of learning new things. This season, check out the following host of riveting new titles that just might be the next big thing.

There is no better way for a child to start this journey, than with the rhythmic rhyming of Tiny Tots Sports (Gift Guide). This young company has tapped into the importance of reading, splashed with an emphasis on fun! Toddlers will delight in the colorful characters and the repetition of sounds. Children will be thrilled to learn about sports in easy language written from a kid’s point of view. Each book showcases the importance of teamwork and sportsmanship while teaching the basic rules and concepts of each sport. Whether it’s Tiny Tots Football, Tiny Tots Soccer or Tiny Tots Basketball, every child is a winner with a learning book from Tiny Tots Sports.

Little Princesses stay busy this season with Disney’s Princess Collection Workbook. This workbook from Bendon Publishing International (Gift Guide) overflows with 238 pages of stories and activities featuring Disney’s princesses. For pint-size divas that require a little style with their learning, Bendon Publishing takes the humdrum out of numbers with the Barbie Time and Money Workbook Tablet, proving that numbers can be fun and fashionable. Any child will delight in taking Elmo along and Bendon Publishing is on the right track with the 24-page Sesame Street Sticker Activity Book with Pull Out Poster.

Children will giggle and snort, shout with glee, as they are captivated by the Family of Ree! Action Publishing (Gift Guide) ignites imaginations with this whimsical tale of adventure in the fanciful world of Ree, while teaching children to care about the world around them. “Family of Ree” is the first in a series, encouraging values, caring about the environment and respecting your parents.
