Book Reading- A Best Hobby
Hobby is Essential
Each and every person is familiar with the word ‘hobby’. It actually means a person doing something very passionately in his free time for fun. Everyone has something or the other as hobby that can be from sleeping to something really creative and useful such as making an electronic item.
CREATIVE and NON-CREATIVE
Hobby depends on the age of the person. It’s quite normal to have or grow a different interest according to one’s age as well as mind.I feel, sleeping, watching T.V., gossiping and many other non-creative activities are just useless time consumption. May be they are fun but the happiness is momentary. It fails to boost up energy for the next important task. Non-creative hobbies make one feel lethargic and they work as addiction. The hobby which pumps energy for the next work makes it more enjoyable.Happiness from creative activity is always long lived. It is actually doing something what one loves to do without getting bored and even enhances knowledge, is in true sense a proper hobby. Time is very valuable then why to waste it, right.
Today, I would like to share something about the age old practice- story book reading. I know it is a very common hobby and an extremely popular choice. Thus, further discussion on this subject without something extra would make it mundane. I assure you, it will definitely have its own x-factor.
A habit of reading books cannot be developed in one day. Parents and teachers have to play a major role in developing this passion from childhood. Narrating bedtime stories to children are very common practice but to develop a love for the books, it is necessary that one should read it himself.
The reading habit can only be formed after a certain age when a kid starts recognizing the alphabets and gradually learns to read. Well, the preparation for the reading habit can easily start during the pre-learning stage.
It is a must that the parents and teachers must read out stories from books with full of colourful pictures which spontaneously draws the child’s attention. This makes the child quite inquisitive and definitely starts going through the book page by page. It enhances the picture observation power and enables the child to understand the described situation.
This benefits the child in three ways:
1) Kid learns situational conversation. Starts using the sentences of the story books in the similar situation.
2) Word power increases.
3) Starts craving for more and more books.
The craving for books is the foundation stone for the hobby of book reading. It develops in many folds with the ability to read and then it further mounts up with the fluency and flawless reading.
Constant flow of books - Here again, the parents and the teachers have a daunting task ahead. The flow of books should not be stopped. There must be a constant supply of books at regular intervals, failing to do so the child will lose interest in the newly grown attraction for books. Non-availability of books will lead to a saturation point and the hunger for books will have an untimely death.
Once the demand of required books gets fulfilled the interest of reading books reaches such a point where any reading material keeps the child engaged. Comics, children’s magazine and children’s story book to start with in the early age and later on with growing age books remain unlimited. According to one’s subject of interest the books are unnumbered due to the great number of authors with their thinking cap on.
Quality reading - One more thing is to be kept in mind by the parents and the teachers at the time when the quest of reading starts rising, the young readers must always come across a quality reading stuff. At this point of time the choice factor should critically be taken care of. Once it is dealt with sincerely and effectively and a proper quality taste for books is developed then the basic guidance gets over. It’s time when the parents and the teachers can easily take a back seat leaving the young ones with a constructive base and them to walk ahead in search of a formidable future.
FUN and KNOWLEDGE
Book reading hobby is genuinely a unique hobby. Once this becomes a hobby there is no scope to get bored. Rather, one gets upset if the book options are missing. This hobby brings forth unparalleled knowledge and creates a healthy environment. It’s a hobby which is a mix of fun, pleasure and deep knowledge. To create this hobby a beginning is to be made by the parents and the teachers with extreme patience. Just experience it.
