The years between ages 3 and 5 are critical to literacy skills. Your child may begin to recognize letters and words. You can begin with picture books that have large colourful pictures (illustrations) and a simple storyline with short repetitive text.
You can introduce reassuring books that talk about common experiences at the child’s age – such as dealing with the first day at school, sharing belongings with a friend, welcoming a new sibling, going to the doctor etc. Reading these books can help your child deal with his/her feelings and connect the story with his/her experience. Your child may display interest in specific themes such as dinosaurs, vehicles, animals, fairies and princesses, among others. With the wide range of gently-used children’s books available in India, you can buy nominally-priced books on almost any theme.
