When children learn to read on their own, it opens up a world of possibilities for them. Their imaginations grow, their vocabulary expands, and their ability to entertain themselves grows exponentially. But, as a mom, it can be hard to let go of reading out loud, as it's such a precious activity to share with your kids. But there are so many books your kids can and should read on their own. Because while reading to your children is a wonderful way to get them started, it's also important to foster a sense of excitement over reading things themselves.
My mother instilled a love for reading in me at a very young age, and when I learned to read on my own, I devoured books at an alarming pace. I owe so much of my personal progress as a child (and an adult, to be honest) to the books I read. Reading on your own as a child gives you a chance to stretch your imagination, to spread your wings, and to travel to far off lands. It also gives you a chance to come to your own conclusions about things. Sometimes, children learn the best lessons when you give them the chance to fly on their own. So if you're ready for your child to spread their wings in the library, why not check out some of these great books for kids to read on their own.
