The Importance of Books to Children

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Giving children access to different types of literature is crucial to their success and growth. Children develop cognitive skills to succeed in their academics through reading, including other benefits. This is why renowned authors such as Daniel Hander have a passion for children’s literature to insert helpful values through books.

Below are some ways children’s books are important to children.

Cognitive development

Books strengthen cognitive development by encouraging more profound thoughts about literature. Quality stories do not tell the young readers everything but allow for some different perspectives. Readers can evaluate and analyze the story and summarize the topic. This strengthens the children’s cognitive functions by allowing them to express themselves through language.


Children’s books are a powerful tool for teaching and instilling values. Some benefits may even have a lifelong impact. It would be best to ask your child what lessons they took from the story and what they didn’t understand. Be clear on the moral of the story and how it can be applied in their daily life.

Triggers imagination

Imagination development is a key component of children’s books, such as those of author Daniel Handler. Imagination triggers creativity and innovation and can lead to unlimited opportunities. When kids develop their imagination, they learn to view things from a different angle and see and solve challenges from different perspectives.

Promotes emotional and moral development

Stories have the power to develop emotional intelligence. Stories contain numerous situations when characters need to make moral decisions. Through these characters, children are encouraged to think deeper about their feelings.

Encourages personality and social development

Children are very delicate during their early stage, and children’s stories can help them develop good personalities. They can learn to be caring, intelligent, and friendly through stories. In addition, stories foster social development by encouraging children to accept and love people as they are no matter how different.

They encourage children to be considerate and kind people, and these qualities may be consistent with developing children into quality adults.

Enhanced senses development

The aesthetics of a book is very intriguing, from the fascinating illustrations to the paper’s feel. Books with elaborate physical sections can register new sensations to a child hence contributing to the development of their senses.

Boosts cultural understandings

Books are great resources for children to learn about different customs and cultures. This develops their social skills and encourages them to make a difference in the world around them.
