Guide for Dads: Bookstores

A book is like a garden carried in the pocket. - Arab Proverb

 

Bookstores are another good source of reading aloud material. One advantage of buying books is that having books of their own provides a special feeling for children. They may have a favorite book, just like they have a favorite toy. Many bookstores have a

children’s section. These often have comfortable places where customers can sit and browse and to read aloud (quietly).

 

One way to use books from a bookstore is to give children books as gifts. Inside the book, write a personal message. This message can be connected to what happens in the book, it can be a message about reading, or it can be a general message of affection and concern for the child.

 

In addition to libraries and bookstores, many other sources can be treasure troves of read aloud materials. Relatives, colleagues at work, and neighbors may have books that their children have outgrown. Also, they and teachers can recommend books that other

children have enjoyed. Children’s friends and classmates may want to trade books. Also, the next time a child has a birthday guests can give books instead of other presents.

 

Dad reminder: You can start to read to your kids at ANY age. It's fun for the kids and dad. It really is a dad duty!
