While reading books, children are left with impressions of so many things. Some of them include:
- Food (e.g. cakes, vegetables, etc)
…and the list can go on. Lets talk about what kids have access today, from picture books, comics, science fiction, to adventure. Most of them are very well illustrated or even interactive content including sound and light. Children 5 yrs or younger are attracted by colours. ReadMyStori App (Android / iOS) gives access to different books across different age group.
Lets address best characters which have been liked and appreciated by kids across generations. Sharing a few here:
- Charlotte’s Web, by E B White (The New Yorker writer cherished for his elegance of style gives us an altruistic spider with exquisite manners, and a pig to make her proud. There are intimations of mortality, but a plot of fame and legacy thumbs its nose at the inevitable).
- Biscuit from the Biscuit series: Biscuit the sweet, yellow puppy, who is good at making friends, being playful, and learning new tricks
- Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne : Characters begin days by visiting one another, and end up shifting houses, learning to fly or surviving floods
- Series of Mythological Stories (in India) listed at http://www.kidsgen.com/fables_and_fairytales/indian_mythology_stories/
Have listed some characters, look forward to hear from you on other things listed above and the classic books as reference.
