Recognize the Benefits of Early Reading

by | Apr 10, 2012 | 0 comments

Story time was a popular time when we were all younger, and it still is with young children today. Dr. Seuss, Eric Carle, Stan and Jan Berenstein, and Robert Munsch are just a few great children’s book authors. “And will you succeed? Yes! You will indeed! 98 and ¾ percent guaranteed!” –Dr. Seuss. April 2nd was “National Children’s Book Day”, so we wanted to observe the holiday with a list of the best-selling children’s books. According to multiple sources, here are the top five best-selling children’s books of all time –

  1. The Poky Little Puppy (Golden, 1942) 14,898,341
  2. The Tale of Peter Rabbit (Frederick Warne, 1902) 9,380,274
  3. Tootle (Golden, 1945) 8,560,277
  4. Green Eggs and ham (Random House, 1960) 8,143,088B
  5. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Scholastic/Levine, 2000) 7,913.765

Do you have any of these in your library? Books can be a powerful tool to benefit toddlers and preschoolers in many ways. As a parent, reading to your child is one of the most important things you can do to provide them with a foundation for academic excellence.

Another perk about children’s books is the lesson they teach! Did you know most of what we needed to know to succeed in business and/or life we learned as young children? There are a ton of children’s books that have taught you about what it takes to succeed in life. They are short and sweet,  and easy and enjoyable to read! For example, “Oh the Places You Will Go” by Dr. Seuss teaches us about self-determination and leadership. What other life lessons have you learned from a children’s book?
