If you are a mother or father of a young child (especially 3-10 years old) and you want him or her to be successful in life, make sure that you buy enough story books from an early stage. If you are a teacher in school, encourage your students to read more story books. Ask the parents to buy story books.
Buying a barbie doll or a remote controlled car doesn’t mean anything to your child’s brain development. It actually harms your child’s brain development. If you want to buy toys, make sure you buy something that’s educational or helps to improve certain skills. We will cover that topic another day.

Improving reading skill, learning new language (especially English, if that’s not your first language), learning new words, learning to make sentences etc. are just few academic abilities that vastly improve among the children who start reading story books at an early age. So, believe it or not, reading story books from an early age helps children to do good in schools.

At an early stage, these issues are important to learn for a child. What’s the best way to learn than from a story book? And keep in mind that schools don’t teach them. Emotional Intelligence is going to be a key skill that will require in the future to get into better jobs that also develops through reading books.
