Best books to read for 9 to 11 years old /the value of books

Image by iRedRubies

The value of books for a child is very great.  Books serve to expand the child’s understanding of the world, to acquaint him with things, nature, everything that surrounds him.  From childhood, while reading books, a person actively develops his thinking.  The book awakens both thought and imagination.  The book teaches you to perseverance and the development of skills for independent work, makes you think, analyze, predict.

It is better to acquaint a child with books from birth.  It is necessary to instill a love of books from early childhood, then there will be no problems in the future.  The child should develop a reading habit and then, at an older age, he will continue to read as well.

Reading helps to increase vocabulary and speech development.  And each new word that has become understandable expands the boundaries of the world, enriches it with new meanings.  His thinking becomes more harmonious and orderly, a solid foundation is formed for further education.
