The Best Board Books For Children

0 Comments


When choosing early childhood education books, what aspects should new parents consider? When a child is just beginning to grow up, from what perspective should parents educate the child? Through books, what perspectives should parents let their children establish?
I have reviewed five early childhood education books, hoping to help every new parents.

What kind of books are good children’s books? Even the children’s book authors have different ideas about it, so it is really not easy to judge a book is good or not. Parents are racking their brains in choosing good children’s books for their kids. Perhaps some people will say why not choose books in accordance with the recommended book list and award-winning book catalog? But think it over, the so-called “Children’s favorite books” are really suitable for your kids? Even the winning books, also can not guarantee the real value.

This year, My friend who in the children’s book printing industry, gave me some useful suggestions about “Choose the best books for children”. Therefore, I bought many children’s board book for my baby. The quality of these books is very good, the content is very rich and educational.

In children’s book printing, board books are specially designed for children aged 6 months to 3 years old. The biggest advantage of children’s board book printing in China is it can withstand the toss, no matter how to throw it, it will not break, and it will not be torn. It is very suitable for 1-2-year-old babies. As the first books that children come into contact with in life, the design of board books is becoming more and more varied, providing parents with many choices.

 

One set of 4 pop-up books, exactly 4 colors (yellow, green, blue, red), 4 scenes (garden, pond, ocean, farm). There is a small window for every 2 pages to open, it can satisfy the curiosity of babies.

 

Regarding children’s toilet training, parenting experts have many suggestions and requirements. For me, letting children happily have the concept and requirements of going to the toilet can form a habit.

The author is very considerate, distinguishing between boys and girls in design, “Superhero Potty Time” for boy, “Princess Potty Time” for girl.

 

There are two versions of this book: board book and paper book.

This is a book about explains basic etiquette, which can help children understand politeness since childhood

Regarding basic politeness, it is indeed part of the “family education” that must be trained from an early age. Parents should also set an example! The “thank you” and “please” at home should be mentioned at any time. Now my child’s sentence pattern is: “Can I ask for a glass of water?” Or “Can I ask for that book?”. Rather than simply: “Give me a glass of water” or “I want that book”.

This is probably the power of the environment, and children are very malleable.

 

There are many books by Eric Carle, but not many books are printed and designed hardboard books. This one is relatively rare.

This book tells the story. A group of small plastic ducks in a factory was ship overturned during the delivery of the cargo and floated on the sea and encountered various animals.

Eric Carle’s book not only has a plot but also has some knowledge points worth learning for children:

1) The concept of ordinal number;

2) Some animals related to water and ocean;

3) “Identity” theme.

 

This is a book about getting up & morning. There are 4 children in the story, and they have different skin colors and hair colors. This design idea is very helpful to cultivate children’s concept of equality from an early age. The so-called “concept” is a subtly cultivated idea.

The reason I recommend this book is because although adults have a concept of equality in the adult world, in children’s education, the concept of equality should also be established.

In the 1-2-year-old baby stage, it is not about asking children to learn what to master but to let them do something to attract their attention. The hardboard books have colors and patterns, plus the voice of the parents, giving the children the initial stimulation from the outside worldFree Articles, and it is very durable and recommended.

Yet most people don’t focus on the content of their site.  Instead, they happily spend tons of money on fancy images and flashy graphics, thinking (mistakenly) that that’s what their visitors want.  Au contraire, mon amie.

Your website visitor is pretty much interested in one thing – Do you have the solution they’re looking for?  And they’re not going to find the answer to that question in the graphics.  Nor is it likely to come from material written by someone inexperienced in writing website copy.

The truth is there is no factor more powerful for your bottom line than your copy.  A well-done site truly can help grow your business.  Use this checklist to see if your site content has what it takes to turn your visitor’s interest into action.

* Does it clearly identify your audience?  This is one secret you don’t want to keep.  Your visitor wants to know whether they belong there – or not.

* Does it have a bold, attention-grabbing headline that points toward the challenge your visitor is facing (and that you solve)?

* Does it create emotional connection with your visitor?  It’s crucial to begin building a relationship with potential clients right from the outset. 

* Is the content results-based and benefit-oriented?  You want your visitor to have an immediate sense of the results they’ll get from working with you.

* Is the writing style conversational?  It’s much easier to feel connection when the “voice” you’re reading is friendly and informal, rather than stilted and impersonal.

* Do you tell your visitor’s story – from the challenge they’re facing to you as solution?  The whole thing is about them, not you (even your About Me page!).

* Does each page make the most of short, engaging writing to capture and keep their attention (not more than 350-500 words for Home page)?  Every word should count.

* Do you have a clear objective for each page?  Don’t leave your visitor guessing about what action you want them to take next.  Spell it out and give them a plainly visible call-to-action button to click.

* Is the layout easily readable?  Screen viewing tires the eye quickly.  Use dark text on light background, colorful (but not dominating) images, bullet lists and short paragraphs to break up the text and lessen the eye strain.

* Do you have an opt in box with an enticing freebie to elicit their contact information (so you can maintain the connection you established with your website)?

* Do you maximize your use of testimonials?  Real-life snippets of how you’ve helped others are not only deeply personal (there’s that sense of connection again), but also excellent vehicles for demonstrating the specific results you offer.

The content of your site is the key to turning interest into action.  Make sure that yours sparkles.  Your clients, and your businessArticle Submission, will thank you.

Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago.

Learning by listening is a great way to:
– increases imagination and understanding
– improves your listening skills
– improves your own spoken accent
– learn while on the move
– reduce eye strain

Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone.
