A love of reading should be nurtured, not forced. One will only enjoy reading if there is interest and the willingness to read. Hence, if young children read books that are beyond their cognitive and comprehension level, this may backfire and cause them to lose interest in reading.
It is widely recognised that cultivating interest is more effective than simply imparting knowledge.
In this session, A/P Sin will share with participants how to select books that are appropriate for children’s age and cognitive levels, allowing them to read at their own level, as well as to ensure the children enjoy reading.
