Parents must be ready to answer satisfying answers whenever questions arise. They must also bring in a lot of patience whenever teaching their kids new words and vocabulary. Keeping in mind that they are doing this for the love of their children will make the activity as comfortable as can be. Their children will have the best reading session with this bonding activity.

(Keith) I think this is very true, Harry Potter books speak to children of today's world. The article leads on to say that a children's book can lead to a structured unconscious way for a child to resolve painful feelings. By reading a book, children can alleviate stress and anxiety by letting their imagination run wild. If groups continue to ban books like Harry Potter then they are decreasing a child potential for happiness. Keith says, "I want them (my children) to read books of fantasy that speak to and challenge their unconscious to be the best they can be.
One book that comes to mind when I think of children is “If you Happy and you know it”. This book allow children to jump up and down, clap their hands, and stomp their feet. Parent should provide their children with different multicultural books. These books can help children learn about different things. Multicultural books can help young children learn about different characters in a book.

In addition to the books, the children should be given a variety of ways in which to express their thoughts and feelings about these books, either through discussion, writing, or their own art work. I agree because this could only allow children to enjoy reading more and lets them feel like their opinions matter and are appreciated. Having books readily available only increases a child’s desire to read and creates in him or her a love for books that, hopefully, never goes away. Works Cited Kiefer, Barbara.
The more books that are read to children, the more their vocabulary expands. Reading to children can introduce them to different literature they might not find on their own (Koralek). Another essential skill that children need is the ability to listen, which they learn while being read to (“Importance of Reading Aloud”). Not only does reading give children the ability to listen, it gives them the ability to understand how stories work. “The more a child knows about and experience the joys of reading before kindergarten, the easier it will be to learn to read,” (“Why Reading to Children Is Important”).
Despite the popular belief that comic books are merely entertainment for children, and while most modern english class curriculums have kept the traditional reading syllabus custom, a large number of schools have begun integrating graphic novels into their english curriculums. Graphic novels tend to be widely popular with adolescent audiences. This assists in the education process by making the prospective work appear less like boring schoolwork and more like entertainment. It logically follows that students who are entertained by their schoolwork will be more likely to complete a simple homework assignment instead of blowing off the usual assigned reading. Why not teach students by employing materials they enjoy if in fact they can learn more?
Speaking and Listening One of the most often over looked yet essential part of literacy development is developing a child’s speaking and listening skills. If a child has a very limited vocabulary it will be harder for him or her to express what happened in a story. Being able to hear the play on words in rhyming a book, or noticing the subtle differences in word choice can change how a book is enjoyed. One strategy teachers can use to help students develop their speaking and listening skills is to teach the students simple rhymes. Reading simple nursery rhymes or short poems help increase a child phonological awareness.
The more a child hears a story the greater they come to understand its meaning and purpose. Reading books to children is a means of demonstrating how to read and gives students a model to follow when they read independently. (Barratt-Pugh & Rohl, 2000, p. 124-125). Parents play a large role in encouraging children to read and enabling them to become confident readers. Parents are aware of what motivates their child and can choose books that will stimulate their child’s interest.
Controversial responses about the appropriateness of adolescent novels had been defied since the early 1800-1900 in America. Published adolescent books are continuously being challenged by parents, students, and even teachers in concern to the immoral values taught in the academic environment. The early exposure to the nature of sex, racism, death, and poverty marks the concern to many of these prosecutors. However, ironically these concerns fulfill the degree of adolescent maturity. Since young adults are encouraged to reach adulthood, it only makes sense to include these immoral values part as the young adult’s educational aim.
Children's books teach the norms, social rules of behavior, and the values, broad ideas regarding what is desirable to most of society, to children. These are taught to help the process of socialization,the process of social interaction that helps people develop the norms of society, but if these are going to set into the children they must go through internalization,the process in which people incorporate within them the standards of behavior prevalent within the larger society.1 The books and videos that are presented to children are for children's entertainment, but as people realize that children learn from everything they see and hear, these devices have become tools ... ... middle of paper ... ... to put in into their own mindsets. The ideas of teaching tolerance is great as long as it is referring to the toloerence of people and not of actions. The one problem with this teaching is the idea that there is no absolute truth of right and wrong. Teaching kids to treat others with respect no matter the differences is great but not teaching children that they can do whatever they want.
