Undoubtedly, picture story books are engaging and are a definite kid’s attractor. But the real question is that, are they really beneficial? In other words, can we at-least use these picture books to groom our children? Yes, with the specific and relevant procedure you will be able to teach your child the desired content using picture book. Let’s look at how and what to teach a kid with a picture story book.
This can be taught to your child either explicitly or implicitly with the help of picture books. Picture story books contain several stories that stress the basic moral value – sharing. The stories; monkey and the dog, how do dinosaurs play with their friends; all these share a single aspect through their entire stories i.e. sharing. If these stories don’t explicitly hit your child then teach your children the value of sharing by at-least making them share their picture book with their friends. I said ‘at-least’.
Many picture story books intentionally incorporate a particular story that deals with science domain. Mostly it will be having a context where a child will ask science-related queries to an educated elderly person and they will be answering the same. The advantage of a picture story book is that the subject will be explained accompanying with its picture. This makes the learning process easier. For example, if a context of hydrochloric acid is dealt using a picture it speaks a lot more than the text. You may ask what. A picture of using a hydrochloric acid will convey that hydrochloric acid is a liquid; its usage will depict that it should be used with care, the scenario will signify that it should be mostly used in laboratory arena and many more aspects with respects to the infographics used.
No matter which picture book you are referring to. Honesty and reward are the subjects that are a mandate for a kid’s book. The sayings and stories in the picture book would show how honesty is the only thing that matters in the end and who stands by it will be the ultimate recipient of the reward. Teaching with pictures along with it will embed this value deep into your kid brain. The positive side is that even if your child is only interested in the reward during the initial stages he/she would be fed that the only way to attain is through honesty.
Picture story books are actually restricted as a fun material. On the other hand, they are more efficient than a typically intended value oriented book. So it’s time to buy your kids some real things that provide them fun and learning at the same time.
