Not sure what to read to your child. Check out this list of pocket friendly books that you can pick up for your kid.Â
When I was expecting my second child, I was little worried how does this little girl can spend time alone after her free- play time while I will be busy with the younger one. During myÂ pregnancy I took her toÂ nearbyÂ library so that I can read and also inculcate the reading habit in my elder one. Thankfully there were many interesting books for her age withÂ lots of illustrations. Initial days I always preferred picking a book withÂ lots of colorful illustrations, big fonts and simple vocabulary. Below are the few of her favorite early reader choice of books with small gist of story.
â€œIf you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more to more intelligent make them read more fairy talesâ€- Albert Einstein
Today She isÂ an avidÂ reader and a bookwormÂ . Her room has not sufficient space forÂ her collection of books.Â DefinitelyÂ everyone is amazedÂ withÂ her vocabulary. BelieveÂ meÂ none of the books are expensive and they are veryÂ pocket-friendly.
Below is the list of some good and interesting stories for early readers | Pocket friendly books for kids
Though I didnâ€™t plan to start with this story, It happened to be my childâ€™s first story in her reading journey. Itâ€™s a very good fairy tale which leaves lot of imagination and fantasy in young childâ€™s mind about Prince and princess story.
Goldilocks and The Three Bears
One more story where a small girl goes alone to the forest and enters into the Bearâ€™s house in which she eats baby Bearâ€™s food, sleeps on baby bear’s bed, sits on baby bear’s chair. Be ready to answer the questions, momma can kids go alone to the forest? Lot of curious questions will pop up in their young mind.
So an adventurous day of a little girl called Goldilocks, who loves everything owned by a baby bear in the forest.
Beauty and the Beast
Itâ€™s a good story to introduce something called â€œFantasy â€œ. It just shows what all one can do to save the family. The beautiful girl lives with a beast to save her family. When I read this story first time to my daughter she was not happy to accept that how can she leave her parents and live somewhere else without them.
The Ugly Duckling
Though the story looks like normal any other fairy tale, I believe there is lot of hidden meaning and moral in the story. We have make our children to accept someoneâ€™s â€˜ rejectionâ€™ too where the swan egg gets hatched in a duckâ€™s nest and being dark coloured among a group of ducklings the ugly duckling looks odd one out.
The end of the story is quite good and motivating.
The Milk Maid
This story shows how things will get spoiled instead of doing the work one in a dreamy state. I personally felt there is lot more as parents we have to learn from this story before teaching our kids.
The Grateful Lion
This story shows how a wild animal can also be tamed with love. Also it teaches to help them back when we take help from someone.
The Snow White
Itâ€™s one of the fairy tale where lot of points needs to be understood. At the end of the story when I asked my kid what did you understand she said â€œ One should not be jealousâ€
The Little Mermaid
This is one of the beautiful fairy tales where I read more than 1000 times to my kid as a bedtime story. With this story, you get to new words like mermaid and treasure. That is a lot to make them understand the sea world. Rest all left to their imagination and your patience to answer their curious questions.
U and ME little Bear: Written by Martin Waddell
This is a beautiful story which portrays how we mothers can spend a lot of a good time, play time with our kids without making them feel bored and lonely. Personally, I used to love reading this story to my daughter. Also, it teaches the importance of free play and helping mother in the day to day chores.
