Kind of Books your 5 year old kid should have!

Since my childhood, I believed books to be assets and I still believe that. I remember the first political book I read was from my father's trunk and the book's name was "In the Arena" by Richard Nixon. I simply loved the book as it gave me an insight into the past world events. As a child, I used to go with my father  to library to borrow books. My mom also played an integral part by bringing small books for us (me and my siblings) when she went out for grocery shopping.
 
Believe me! I bought first book for my baby when she was not even six months old. Then books came coming in and today when she is five, everywhere I can see in her room are books. Even the toy box is inundated with books. As my husband is also fond of books, it seems that our love for books has been transferred into our daughter.
 
Now what I have done is that I have categorized books by putting them in separate drawers. I thought that it would also give me an idea about what kind of books my daughter should read out of her collection everyday. Following are the categories and this is also my list of must haves for your five year old girl!

  • Dora story books and Sesame Street story books (Related to favorite cartoons)
I have written Dora because it is my daughter's favorites cartoon character. You can choose books related to your child's favorite character but make sure he learns something out of them. Dora the explorer's books of different levels are available in the market and you can select  books according to your child's age. I have found a great deal of improvement in my daughter's vocabulary after I started reading to her these story books. The beautiful pictures even take me to the adventurous world of Dora and Boots.

I love Sesame Street concept as it promotes different people belonging to different genres of society bonding so well.

While Dora books tell us more about Dora, her friends and family; Sesame Street talks more about the larger group settings. Sesame street story books also teach children a lot of new experimental things.
My little one also loves stories related to Barbie.
  • Moral story books
Morality based story books promoting good manners,honesty , selflessness, and brotherhood also play a pivotal part in children's lives.

  • Fairy Tales
And who can forget fairy tales taking us to the enchanted world of Rapunzel,Snow white and Cinderella . These are all time little girls' favorites.
  • Colouring books and activity books
Five year olds are no doubt little kids who love coloring, painting and solving puzzles. Activity books that engage them in counting, joining alphabets to make new words and colouring  are best for kids at this age.

  • Books related to study: writing books
Of course study time has to be there. Apart from school books, kids should have different writing books at home so as to give them a free area to explore their learning abilities.

No matter how much you spend on kids clothes or their recreation, spending on their books guarantee a knowledgeable future tomorrow!
