Children’s books: developing identity through books

Your child develops their own identity by looking around their environment and deciding what they want to be or do and what not. Books can help him to create strong role models that he can use as a guide and support his personality development.

At the age of 3 your child is in the process of developing his own little personality. Especially the days in kindergarten will play a big role in your child’s life. It can play and interact with other children. In this way, it learns good social behavior and practices different roles. Of course, the parents are also taken as role models and so the little ones mutate into mother and father, construction workers, cooks or gardeners in the game. There are no limits to the imagination – and none should be set either. Because only if your child can try it out will it later develop its own identity and be able to decide what it wants and what it doesn’t want.

Developing identity: Gentle support through books

You can support your child on its way to an independent personality by not restricting it in its ideas and plans, but still be a role model. With the help of books , your child can also better understand their environment and get to know other role models and different roles within society. Reading and reading aloud also supports the development of language skills .

Reading aloud promotes later language skills

Many parents sometimes forget the importance of reading aloud. Of course, everyday life is often stressful, but you or your partner should still take some time to read aloud every day. Preferably at the same time so that reading aloud develops into a beautiful ritual for your child. The time before bed is particularly good for this. But you can also add a few minutes before your nap or after breakfast, whatever suits your daily rhythm best. You will soon notice how much your child enjoys listening to you and diving into great fantasy worlds. Almost incidentally, your offspring also learns new words and expressions, which promotes your child’s later language skills and thus also makes it easier to learn to read and write.
