For most children who have never written a book review, they find it challenging at first because they do not know where to start or what is expected of them.

Reading has so many benefits that could not be counted. When I was in grade 4 I read a quote on my school board which was written by our teacher. He used to write one quote daily to motivate the students. While entering the school we used to take a glimpse of it. I hardly remember other quotes but one quote which captivated my mind was: “Today a reader, tomorrow a leader” – Margaret Fuller. This quote had such an impression on my mind that it made me a reader and consequently a writer too! Parents need to inculcate the habit of reading in kids at an early age. It will remain with them for their lifetime. Reading habit will lead your kids towards success. It is never too early to read to a baby. I used to read during my pregnancy too! Reading to your baby before bedtime does not only develop bond but also boosts their cognitive faculties and in no time it will become a habit.
