Twinkle posted a picture of her daughter Nitara’s bookshelf, with the caption “A child’s bookshelf. The passport that lets her travel across distant lands. A kaleidoscope that she turns to see converging patterns. Stacks of yellowing pages that she folds and tucks away inside her head.”
Emphasising on the importance of reading for children, she further wrote, “It doesn’t matter what our children read as long as they start loving the idea of reading.”
The actor shared with her followers that her daughter loves reading ‘The Naughtiest Unicorn’ books. So much so that they buy a new book every week from the series. “My little one is currently obsessed with The Naughtiest Unicorn and every week or so we order one more from the series,” Twinkle wrote.
That’s not all. When a few parents shared their thoughts about children’s reading habits, Twinkle responded to some of them. For instance, when Brinda P Shah asked if the ‘Dog Man’ books are good for kids, Twinkle even shared her suggestion as she replied, “It’s a fun read for most 7-8 year olds!”
Padmini Choudhary pointed out that buying books gets expensive at times to which Twinkle suggested setting up home libraries with fellow children so that everyone can borrow or exchange books. “Why don’t you start a small library within your group of friends with children of similar ages and they can borrow from each other?”
Well that’s a thoughtful idea not only for kids but for adults too. What do you think about it? Tell us in the comments below!
