Books for Children's Reading Pleasure

Books are a wonderful language learning resource for children of all ages. If you aren't sure what books to pick then ask your librarian or English tutor to help you choose.

Reading can be fun right from the start! Start with large print books with colourful pictures. Books about places, things and people (especially special characters that appear in a series of books) are popular with kids of all ages. Nursery rhymes and poems can be fun as well.

Choose books that have repetitions of the same word thought the book. In that way vocabulary acquisition will be enhanced. Read aloud to your child whilst holding the book together and explain the pictures carefully. You can also show your child that you read and have him sit next to you when you are reading the newspaper for instance.
