As kids become more independent and start to shape their world of interests, it’s nice to bring them along with you to the bookstore. They will browse with you through the coloured covers and often ask you to buy a particular book that they have chosen.

At this age, they are able to be involved in pre-reading activities, including starting to recognise the sounds associated with the signs (the letters) and numbers. Later on, they will be able to recognise simple words as “dog” or “home”. Kids do not necessarily “read” at this stage, but they can memorize┬áseries of letters forming specific words.

Books for pre-readers

Technology is now part of our daily life. There are thousands of interactive books that can be easily bought through the internet. The limit of e-book is that the child do not actually holds the book in his/her hands. They can be entertained by the sounds and moving pictures, but they will be missing out on the actual “relationship” with the book, made of a mix of sensory experiences.

The following are a couple of titles that are perfect for this age group:

  • My First Bob Books (by Lynn Maslen Kertell)
  • All About Bears (By National Geographic Kids)
