World Book Day

Why do I have so many pictures of books on my post today? It is because today is World Book Day. Let us celebrate books today.  All kinds of books. From Nursery Rhymes to children's story books to young adults and adult novels. I don't think we can celebrate books enough, but let us start today.

A lot of people say that it is hard

 to raise children in this world today.
 I am not sayingProduct Detailsthat books make it easy to raise a child, but if a parent sincerely desires to keep his / her children out of trouble, giving importance to reading and spending maybe half an hour a day reading to a child will give him or her a healthy start to life.  I am not saying that there will not be any struggles or hurdles or hardships, but until we make an attempt to create an interest in our children to read we will not find out what else we need to do.   
Children love toys and they may not like it if we give them books for gifts, but for a change give them a fun book. Sooner or later they will look into it and start taking an interest in reading. After all, our professors must have been children once upon a time and their parents must have  given them some kind of incentive to read. Otherwise we would not have anyone to teach us.

A Dr. Seuss book was the first I ever read. I remember being very excited being able to read with only a little help.

I think it was Horton Hears A Hoo

I've always loved reading since I can remember. Some of my kids read, some don't, they've all been encouraged to.
I think it broadens your mind...

I used to read to my son all the time when he was little. But it wasn't until he was in the fourth grade and we found Goosebumps that he discovered reading for himself. I can't imagine a world without books.

Hello Munir,

I believe parents should begin by reading books to their children from babyhood and once the children learn to read, encourage them by starting reading a book together and then leaving them to finish reading it by themselves. It was so with my children and now they do it with their own children.
Hugs, Drora

Oh how I just LOVE books and when I read I love to read books - the internet is kind of taking them away - kind of sad.

I remember when I was very young, my dad would take me to the big library, full of wonderful treasures. In those days, the books were all bound in red leather. I remember it so well and know now what a wonderful gift my dad gave me. A love for books. Thanks for this post, we do need to celebrate books.

I've always loved books and my kids were read too when they were young. I notice that they are good readers as adults. If everyone would turn off the TV and just read to their kiddos at night, I think it would make a world of difference in them!

Books are my favorite gifts to give and get. Of course I love art books but any books ... and vintage book? love. :)

Munir, I didn't know there a World Book Day... although I agree there should be one... I grew up loving books and passing that on to both my children. My youngest gets excited to pick a book from the School-asitic flyers and she loves receiving them as gifts...

I need to get back to the love of reading for myself, I keep talking about it and I just have to start making time.. xox

I think Ray Bradbury said that the only crime worse than burning books is not reading them.

I love all these books! The gift of books is the best thing to give to a child.

Books are so important! I started reading to my kids when they were babies, and probably couldn't understand a word I said. But just being there and doing that, helped them associate reading as something that was good.

I've always read and made my kids read too from a very young age.

I didn't even know there was a World Book Day and I love books. Nice to meet another book lover :-)

I loved to read before my vision started pooping out on me. My children love to read and my grandchildren love to read. Is there any greater legacy?

Hi Munir - reading is such a great gift - we're so lucky ... and so lucky we can look things up and read about them. I really should have posted something for World Book Day ... I'm not with it - as the days go around ...

We had a playroom .. with a ping pong table, train set, piano and lots and lots of books - we were very lucky ... I sat for hours reading as a youngster ..

Cheers to you - Hilary
