Stories are perfect for helping to develop a child’s imagination by introducing new ideas into their world. The beauty of stories is they can either be super realistic or incredibly fantastical. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of reading fiction books.
Helps With Creativity
Fiction books are great for developing children’s creativity. Allowing them to read about invented characters will help them to then create their own magical stories. By escaping to different worlds it encourages the development of imagination and ideas both in school and out of school.
Helps With Life Experiences
Fiction based on real-life can also help children with their own life experience, as it is showing them how diverse the world is, and teaches them that not everyone’s lives are the same.
“I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a good book” – J.K. Rowling
Reading Can Improve Empathy
Reading helps children to put themselves in another person’s shoes, which is an act of imagination called empathy. Fiction books can make children’s worlds become so much bigger when they imagine what life must be like for other people, whether they are real or imaginative.
