Denver developed his reading routine since young through a couple of channels..
1) Story books from school/home
2) Story books from Public Libraries
3) Online story books (eResources)
4) Mommy reading bedtime stories
I hope Gladys will also loves reading like her Gor Gor. :)
The children are so familiar with the Library surrounding that they will pick their books to browse/read. Going to the Library is one of our favourite activity which helps to cultivate reading habits from young and at NO COST! (i.e. if you remember to return your books on time. :p) But not to worry, there are now various reminder services offered by the Library and it can go to your internet email, fax machine or mobile phone through an sms alert. :) We started with borrowing the library books using our NRIC, till now the children have their very own library cards. The PL has also increased the borrowing priviledges from 4 to 6 books (since July 09) and up to 21 days. :) (which means our family can borrow up to 24 books at one time.) In the past, we'll only borrow about 8-12 books for the children... but this number has increased to more than 12 since Denver wants to read more books for his reading session in school. (This is really encouraging and we don't mind the hassle of carrying the heavy books. ^_^).
Green bag for the month of March. :)
Reading is Fun for both children & adult. Enchanted stories, adventures books, colourful and beautiful pictures... all that needs to bring out a child's creative and imaginative mind.
If Parents have no time to bring their children to the library, reading books online through eResources is another great alternative. There are many eBooks available online and it is Fun and interactive too. :)
Have FUN Reading!
