Every time a child takes a book a new adventure starts. This would be real but it´s not true because there aren´t many children doing that. Some surveys show us how about 95% of children in the USA don´t read. They are playing games on the computer or watching TV and, of course, eating a lot of fat. Only 5% of the children read. This is horrible!
Our mission, as parents, is to show them the fantastic world that exists behind each page of a book. One advantage of doing that is that you can be whatever you want, for instance, a pirate, a soldier, a princess....and every time you are in a new place, you have new friends and new sensations.
Afterwards, they will get free to express themselves . But, sometimes a problem arises. When you need to send the child to the supermarkes and he is reading, he will say "I´m afraid, Mum, I`m busy reading". And you have to shut up.
The first thing we should do is to find the perfect book for the child. If you do that , you have done all the work.
When the child discovers what kind of things happen among the pages, they won´t be able to put it down.
