The Criminal McBride
Don’t Underestimate Your Kid
Our latest ZaZa Book for Kids, “The Town That Didn’t Speak” is about the importance of communication. In the town nobody speaks to one another, and so things get confused, people don’t get what they want, and misunderstandings and disagreements result. Finally an outsider shows them the beauty and importance of communication. Teaching children to communicate is an important life skill that will serve them well throughout their lives.
Children’s books, if used properly, can deliver practical as well as theoretical lessons like increasing a child’s vocabulary, a skill that produces more intelligent, articulate, and meaningful communication. In order to effect proper communication a child must learn both language and analytical skills. Parents shouldn’t underestimate their child’s ability to absorb these lessons, even if the full meaning of what they are learning take years to fully blossom and reach maturity.
Discussing the meanings of the words, pictures, and language in a book helps to hone a child’s analytical skills, something that as they grow becomes more and more important. The language skills parents teach their children when they’re young will help them in later years to understand the news they hear on television and read in the newspapers, and thereby understand the world around them in order to make better decisions both for their own personal welfare and for the good of the community around them.
