Importance of book and book reading

The book is a gate to the fantastic world of science and knowledge; reading is a simple and practical way of cultivating the God-given talents of humans and also the training of science and techniques that guide them in the path of growth and evolution.

If we could make reading a habit in humans, the relation of him with the world of knowledge and awareness wouldn’t be hard and without any hassle, he could grow and strengthen his understanding of the cosmos by studying;

but you should consider that transforming this interest to habit should start from the childhood of human.

The low part of study level in our country is due to unfamiliarity and not use to reading from childhood.

We could be sure that if our children like to read from childhood and the motivation of study shapes in them and know the studying a part of their life, undoubtedly in every period of their life will obtain the material and contents they need and read them.

A child who learns the right way of reading and searching it as a beneficial activity, once reading could provide his satisfaction, he automatically learns to read better.

On the other way, the child who encounters problems with reading avoids reading and even it is possible that he hates the book.

Reading is a treasure that can’t be imposed by force on the child but should help him in finding a way that has beneficial and lasting consequences.

Undoubtedly, the effect of a novel book on the child’s behavior is no less than a teacher’s lesson and that’s why special attention is being paid to the effective role of novel books in the expanding of children’s insight.

Surely, better study, spending less time and more beneficial interpretation, need to be aware of the correct ways of reading.

With correct ways of reading and learning techniques, we could increase the memory strength in older people.

The first effective factor in getting used to reading is “family”.

If parents get used to reading and the child sees that they read books, he will get familiar with the book and takes the book in hand to imitate his parents.

Of course, the families can be divided into three groups:

The first group:

the families that get used to reading and also pay attention to the mental growth of their children.

The second group:

the families that are educated, but don’t have any interest in reading.

The third group:

the families that are not very literate or they are illiterate and are busy with daily life.

If we want to expand the book and book reading among the stratums, we should pay attention to this issue as a long-term process.

Doing periodic activities doesn’t lead anywhere and should consider reading in the form of quality.

This fact should consider as the basis of every basic and educational planning and doesn’t do in the form of slogans or ads that produce anti-value in society.
