Reading is a great skill to have, but what makes reading so versatile is its ability to be applied to countless other things. For instance, by knowing how to read and possessing apt reading comprehension skills, you can learn all about history, math, philosophy, art, and endless other things. Reading can help you sharpen other skills, provide you with the means of learning new things, and can even help motivate you.
Kids are very impressionable when it comes to information as well as self-esteem, and reading can help them in both respects. Playing sports is a great way for kids to get active, get excited and be a part of a team, but some kids may need a confidence boost before taking the leap. KD Novelties has a wide variety of personalized sports books that can help encourage kids to get out there and excel at their sport of choice.
“Football Star” allows your child to join their favorite football team and help them win the game! “G-o-o-oal!” features a story where your child wins a sweepstakes where they get to see their favorite soccer team play. They’re not only asked to help the team win the championship but your child scores the winning goal! “Hockey” puts kids in the center of the action by calling them in to help turn the tide in a game in overtime.
Books like “Homer and Me” and “Sports Superstar” are a little different. “Homer and Me” puts your child on an imaginative trip to the baseball park where they learn about professional sports and the professional players that participate. Kids learn that if they want to be like their role models, they will need to learn how to stay healthy and to make healthy choices. In “Sports Superstar” your child will become a basketball, baseball, football superstar but in order to become a star athlete they learn that practice makes perfect. By trying hard, doing their best, and perfecting their craft, they too can become star athletes.
The back to school season is upon us. This not only means that school is in full swing but so are after-school activities. Taking part in an activity such as a sport or hobby can be a great way for kids to learn, make new friends and gather new skills. Extra curricular activities can help significantly boost a child’s academic performance while also allowing them to exercise other forms of learning while putting their interpersonal skills into practice. But how do you choose an activity to take part in?
We have a wide variety of personalized children’s books that can help introduce different activities to kids. Not only will they become more familiar with some of the sports, skills and other things they can do through reading, but they can also have a better idea of what it might be like to try it since they will be featured in the story. Kids are still developing key imaginative skills, and a personalized book can help them imagine potential or future scenarios. As they read stories with them as the main character, they will be better able to imagine themselves playing a sport or taking up a new hobby this year.
Personalized books are great tools for introducing kids to new ideas while also bolstering their reading skills. When kids read a book starring themselves, they are not only more likely to want to read, but they will feel more confident trying some of the activities their book personas take part in as well.
We all look forward to summer, especially kids. Time spent away from the classroom and outdoors is a healthy way for kids to explore and expand their social health but it can also detract from their reading skills. Reading is important when it comes to academics and has been shown to have a direct correlation with academic success.
This summer, don’t let your kids slack in their reading by showing them that reading can be fun too. Incorporating books with upcoming holidays, like the 4th of July, can help get kids interested in reading. Whether kids are looking forward to a big barbecue, a family picnic, a weekend getaway, or simply watching the fireworks on the 4th of July, a book on the subject is sure to get them reading. Not only does it motivate kids to read by appealing to a holiday, it is also a great vehicle for introducing kids to our nation’s history.
Incorporating books with summer activities is a great way to get kids to read. It can also get them excited to partake in the activities they read about. If your family is planning any sports activities like going camping, playing baseball, football or soccer on the 4th of July, we have a series of personalized books that can get them excited to participate. “Football Star”, “G-o-o-oal!”, “Homer & Me” are all great personalized sports books
that can help get your kids geared up to play ball. Other personalized books like “My CampingAdventure
” and “My Fishing Adventure
” can mirror the summer spirit and help inspire kids to read just as much as it inspires them to get outside and explore.
