It is never too early to introduce books to kids. Ancient Garba Sanskar believes in “education in the womb” for a baby’s mental and behavioral development. It is also a way of bonding with child way before birth. The baby would listen to the parent’s and caregiver’s voices and recognize them. After birth, it’s seen how babies respond to a particular voice of the mother. But unfortunately, many parents pause reading books to newborn assuming they can’t understand books. Well, there is good news for them. Books for kids are there for all age groups including newborns, toddlers, and preschoolers. One just needs to get the right age-appropriate ones. Now, collect the right ones and cuddle your baby. This is a great start to associate them with the joy of reading for lifelong.
