Reading is an important skill that needs to be developed in children. Not only is it necessary for survival in the world of schools and (later on) universities, but in adult life as well. The ability to learn about new subjects and find helpful information on anything from health problems and consumer protection to more academic research into science or the arts depends on the ability to read.
The more you read, the better you become at reading. It's as simple as that. The more enjoyable the things you read are, the more you'll stick with them and develop the reading skills that you'll need for full access to information in your adult lives. Reading should be viewed as a pleasurable activity - as a source of entertaining tales and useful and interesting factual information.
Through books: • learn about people and places from other parts of the world • improving their understanding of and concern for all of humanity • contributes towards our sense that we truly live in a "global village" and may help us bring about a more peaceful future for everyone • This can happen through nonfiction but, perhaps even more importantly, reading novels that are set in other places and time periods can give you a deeper understanding of others through identification with individual characters and their plights. • Through stories and novels you can vicariously try out new experiences and test new ideas, with no negative consequences in real life. • Books also: • give the opportunity to flex critical thinking skills in such areas as problem solving, the concepts of cause and effect, conflict resolution, and acceptance of responsibility for one's actions. • Mysteries allow following clues to their logical conclusions and to try to outguess the author.
