A child needs to be accustomed to communication with a book from an early age. But very often parents do not think about the quality of the chosen work, but this can not only discourage the baby to learn how to read, but also harm his health. How to choose a book for a child correctly?
Before purchasing your favorite product, you should pay attention to the design, quality and semantic content of book products. You should know that the choice of a book should depend on the age of a small reader. For children under one year, children need to buy a small format made from dense cardboard. They should have colorful illustrations and a minimum of text. Useful books are developmental products, on the pages of which there are applications from various materials. Thin books at this age are contraindicated, since the baby will be able to chew them or break them.
For preschoolers, choose thin books with beautiful pictures. At this age, the child will be interested in stories about nature and animals. At the age of five, purchase a well -illustrated children’s encyclopedia that will help answer all the questions of the child. For a younger student, when choosing a printed product, pay attention to the font and pages. The letters in it should not be too large, and the pages should be clamped. This can damage your child’s vision.
When buying another book, be sure to read a couple of pages from it. This will avoid the purchase that will not be of interest to the child. In some cases, the content of book products may harm the baby. By the subject and method of presentation, the publication must correspond to the age of the child.
The quality of the book should be at a high level, since this “food for the mind” should only benefit children. Therefore, before buying the next printed product, pay attention to the binding, format, volume and font of the book. The book should be printed only on white matte paper. The font in it must be clear and contrasting. The binding for babies is better to choose solid, and for older children – soft. Choose publications that are decorated in calm colors, pictures in which are not too bright. The text must supplement the images.
