The ideal book: how to choose, preschoolers

The ideal book – what is it? To begin with, you need to understand what kind of book in question. Ideal for a teenager is one thing, for a younger student it is quite another. But the most important, and perhaps the most difficult in the choice – this is the ideal book for the child before and kindergarten. It is her preparation and I propose to do.

However, I just want to warn you that it will not be about the book that my mother reads and not about standing on the shelf for beauty, but about the one that is being read, turned over and tested for strength by young experimenters from 6 months and up to 5 years old.
Format
. With him, the easiest way: from A6 to A4 sheets. But over A4 will be uncomfortable – the child is small. How to flip through such a monster? A format smaller than A6 is suitable only for books-donuts, with one letter or picture per page. But such books are usually quite expensive and to spend money on them, frankly, makes little sense.

The best option material for pages – thick thick cardboard. Tiny fingers will handy to turn the pages, and, therefore, the baby will read it more often. The sheets themselves will not be torn and will not wear out from time to time if they look varnished. In addition, such books can be wiped with a slightly damp cloth, which is also sometimes not superfluous.

Most pencils on this surface will not write, which means that the pages will retain their appearance. Crayons and helium pens will be removed all the same wet cloth. Uncoated cardboard runs the risk of being painted and frayed around the edges. Alas, only parental control will save from sharp children’s teeth. The only minus of such material is the impressive weight of even a not very thick edition.

Optimal spine material – all the same thick cardboard. Best of all, when the cover and spine – one piece. The use of cloth in this case is unwise – sooner or later it will be slapped and it will come off. Does the child need glue in the diet – the question is generally indisputable. It is also necessary when buying a good look through the pages – if they turn over with difficulty, do not unbend in one line – this is a bad option: rather quickly the book will be torn, just by trying to open it.

The next thing that comes to mind is font. In an ideal book, it should be as simple and clear as possible. Large – at least 12pt and … written dark on light. Fonts fancy, in italics, with decorative elements – all this is not our case. After all, these are the first books of the baby, it is in them that he will look for familiar letters when he wants to learn how to read! Small or, on the contrary, too large font will tire eyes.

From the abundance of bright colors should be abandoned – the baby gets too tired looking at the letters. If a child cries, throws books, is nervous, does not want to read – check his books, perhaps the reason lies in them. If unnaturally bright colors are used, the so-called fluorescent colors are the place of this book anywhere, but not on the bookshelf.

Illustrations occupy most of the children’s publications. And with them a special demand. Please remember once and for all: animals depicted in the pictures, flowers, people should be recognizable! Until the age of 5, the child should see the most realistic toys and images around him. Yes, it is possible that a bunny writing on a blackboard is not the most realistic picture in the world, but it must be a bunny, blackboard and chalk!

Purple aliens, teletubbies, cat dogs, square sponges and other vermin are characters for anyone, but not for a child under 5! Remember this, dear parents. The situation can be any, but the characters are only real, identifiable, and well-known! That is why if a gramophone is depicted in your alphabet on r means that the alphabet is unsuccessful. An exception is if you have a valid and constantly used gramophone in your apartment. Otherwise – wait with the input of this magnificent word.

Another important requirement for illustrations is kindness. In children’s books should not be anything scary. The wolf who ate the little Red Riding Hood’s grandmother must be dangerous, but not frightening. The fox Alice and the cat Basilio should be crafty, but not disgusting. Otherwise, again, we risk getting neurosis and communication problems.

If you pick up a publication and it makes you feel any unpleasant feeling (not counting the sadness of the price) – set it aside. The same feeling is likely to occur in a child, only brighter and stronger. Why is it so important to pay attention to all these seemingly non-essential nuances? Because it is, after all, our kids. This is our future.

The vision that was spoiled by unfortunate fonts, the world perception distorted by bad illustrations, the absence of civic position and personal opinion, infantilism and excessive aggression – we will have no one to blame for all this when the little ones grow up. Neither the loud name of the publisher, nor the credibility of the author is now not a guarantee of quality.

Even to the Golden Key you can make such a design that your hair will stand on end. We, the parents, are the last bastion in the war between the welfare of children and the publisher’s concern for the wallet. Therefore – do not be lazy, choose books correctly!
