Books are amazing! You don’t need much to escape the world around and discover new knowledge, visit fascinating places or be somebody else for a while. There is a different world between paper pages (or clicks of a book reader 😉) which can be yours when you allow yourself to submerge in the story. There is a whole new world at your hands, the incredible world of books and reading!
Today I wanted to look closely at the benefits of reading books and why we should read every day.
My parents love to read so I grew up in a house full of books. Since I remember, the books were always around the house and reading was encouraged from my early childhood. I still remember how excited I was when I got my first night lamp clamped to my bunk bed and was allowed to read longer in the evening. Many times I ended up reading long late evening hours just to finish an exciting book 🙂
Now it is my turn and I’m introducing my kids to the world of reading. Any occasions I have, I try to sneak a book for them, every birthday or Christmas present will include it. My daughter started to enjoy it now, my son is still in the stage of learning how to read but he is very excited at the thought he soon will be able to read any book. I cannot wait to see them love reading books like me! I hope they will catch my reading bug 🙂
