Do children in our current society really set aside enough time for reading?
By Lydia Di Giulio
(Above is a photo of my daughter already developing a love of reading and of books at a very young age. Bridget is now the First Author of “The Flying Desk a-z”).
As a little girl, I could often be found in the school library or curled up in a chair at home with my face buried in a book.
I found it a really magical experience and a privilege to be able to read a range of so many different and wonderful books that were available for readers to choose from.
As a child, I had developed such a love of reading and of books that this has played an important role in inspiring me to become a children’s author.
But do children in our current society view books in the same way as I did, many years ago?
When I was a child, there were no iPads, DS devises or Wii games to distract my attention away from reading. I spent much of my time getting fresh air and exercise outdoors or reading books indoors in the privacy of my bedroom.
Do children really put aside enough time in their busy schedules of playing sport and using technology and their computer devices for reading books? Sadly, I think not.
Therefore, the challenge in today’s society is for parents to encourage their children to make time for reading books as well as engaging in their other activities and to set an example by reading books to their pre-schoolers on a daily basis.
After all, the value and benefits of reading are enormous. By reading a book, we are actually acquiring knowledge which is the most powerful asset that we can ever hope to possess in life.

Are there really any negative aspects of being a bookworm? I think we all know the answer to that, I
think not! Have you ever heard of anyone telling children that they should limit their reading time, I
Have you ever heard of anyone saying that reading can cause digital eye strain? I have not, but I have
heard these things said about children who spend too much of their time using technology.
In buying a book, there are no ongoing or hidden charges like there are in toys requiring batteries,
gaming devices/consoles needing to be recharged, and extra costs associated with buying add-ons or in-
app purchases for apps or games. Please don’t get me wrong here, I am not totally opposed to
technology, after all, my own children love it! But what I am suggesting is that children should be
encouraged to spend more time reading books rather than on using electronic devices and not to be
oblivious to, or forget about, the enormous benefits associated with reading books.
Let’s turn our attention back to a typical story book – what you see is what you get – a beautiful book
that can be treasured and passed on from generation to generation.
The benefits of reading a good book are many. Reading actually takes children on an exciting journey in
their imagination and sparks creativity simultaneously. Reading books improves literacy skills, enhances
and extends children’s vocabulary, and improves grammar usage.
Reading books engages the reader, so much so, that it draws their attention away from the current
world in which we live and transports the reader to another place, encouraging readers to experience
and explore the problems, joys and sorrows of the characters in the stories that they are reading about.
Reading story books can help children forget about their own current problems that they may be
experiencing in their own lives. By identifying with the characters in books, children are being given an
insight into how these characters learn to deal with problems and the strategies used to help overcome
the difficult situations in which the characters themselves are often faced with.
By reading books, we are actually acquiring knowledge and gaining a greater understanding of the world
around us. This acquisition of knowledge is the greatest gift that we can ever bestow on our children.
Admittedly, sometimes it’s difficult to find the time to sit down and read books to our children; after all,
we all lead such busy lives. But as parents, by making a conscious effort to set aside some time every
day, no matter how small, your children will be thanking you for it later. Not only will they be acquiring
knowledge, improving their grammar, vocabulary and literacy skills, but you will be responsible for
fostering a love of reading and of books in your children which will greatly benefit them in the future,
and for many years to come.
