Eighty percent of the ability to learn is developed in the first eight years of life. Hence it is imperative to develop the love of learning in a child from a very young age. One such way is by using interactive books. Interactive books is a fun way to spend time at home productively while helping to develop the mind and stir creative juices from a young age. These books are especially recommended for kids between 3-5.
Mr. Jay Koh, who has been with Educational Technologies, a member of the Times Publishing Group, for ten years, confidently tells of the many outlets that his company is supplying the books to. Not only are childcare centres and primary schools part of the ordering form but some secondary schools have also joined the bandwagon of customers. Educational Technologies develops their interactive books in Hong Kong and markets it all across the Asia Pacific region.
Listen or Read? Your choice
Besides hard copies, their books also come in CD-ROM format as well as audio CDs, giving children a choice of listening over reading.
Koh also recommends that parents play a more active role, by reading to their children. “When parents read to their children, not just are the kids learning, but they are also spending quality time and hence strengthening the emotional bond between parent and child,” he shares.
The interactive books cover a gamut of subjects such as English, Mathematics, Science and General Knowledge.
The books are illustrated and colours are used to widen a child’s interest deeper as he/she plunges into many things featured in the books such as values, appropriate behaviour and advice. As children embark on a journey of learning, they also discover many things along way that are usually not covered by the usual mainstream academic programmes in schools.
Improve your child’s results
Interactive books not only brings out the academic best in a child but also strives to allow a child to be fully aware of his/her potential. Koh speaks about various success stories of kids who have gone on to receive bursaries and awards just by reading interactive books. Additional success stories are available on their website.
