Happy Valley, OR (PressExposure) October 13, 2009 -- Studies have shown that children who are read to early in life develop their own love for reading, and excel in many other areas of life that can help them achieve well into adulthood. But helping a child develop an interest in books can be difficult, especially with so many other distractions, like television, videogames and personal computers.
Fortunately, there are solutions. One of the best ways to engage a child in the reading process is by selecting books that the child can relate to individually. Personalized books help kids âput themselvesâ right into the middle of the action in a way that just isnât possible with other childrenâs books.
By placing them in the role of lead character, one of the key features of personalized books, you can also help children build much-needed self-esteem. Depending on the personalized books you choose, kids can learn good sportsmanship, how to be a friend and even what itâs like to be a real firefighter or magical princess. These types of role-playing activities do more than just entertain kids: they help develop critical learning and thinking skills that can extend to other areas of life, including academic achievement.
Personalized books make ideal gifts for your own kids, as well as gifts for expectant moms and dads, friends or loved ones. And they make ideal gifts for any occasion; some books are even designed around specific holidays, like Christmas, Kwanzaa or a childâs birthday.
The key to selecting personalized books is to find a business that specializes in them, and one that has many styles and themes to chose from.
