It is important for kids to learn how to read. They start by learning about distinguishing words and reading sentences. Then they move on to reading books. After discovering picture and early reading books, soon enough, they will be moving on to reading chapter book series.
Chapter book series are books that enable kids to read stories connected to each other but separated into different books. Once a child is finished reading the first book, his interest will grow to read the second book in the series. Chapter book series reading can provide kids with a number of benefits. Here are some of them.
They help ignite imagination in kids.
Reading chapter books help boost a kid’s imagination. It allows them to travel places, meet new friends, go on an adventure and many other things, simply by reading a book right at home. Their imagination can help them expand their thinking and develop their creativity.
It helps kids build a love for reading.
Reading a chapter book series helps kids gradually build a love for reading. In lieu of pictures, kids learn to appreciate reading and understanding words and how they are used to describe and “paint a picture”, so to speak.
It helps kids to develop patience.
Chapter book series do not usually end when the book ends. Kids would need to read the next book in the series to know more about the story. This can help the kids develop patience in trying to finish a story. The payoff they get is when they finish reading a story and follow it through reading several books. This is where chapter book series has its benefits.
