Reading is like eating. If you eat good food, you will want to eat more. If you read good books, you will keep looking for good books to read.

Reading brings a sense of joy and energy that will eventually feed a thirst for more and a desire to grow. We hope that our children from the Nest can make full use of the wonderful time this summer, spending at last 1-2 hours every day in reading for fun.

However, with the development of technology, parents and children are inevitably involved in the wave of e-reading. TV, computer, mobile phone and other electronic devices can transmit content which is harmful to young children. It's not good for concentration and it's bad for serenity.

 

Children in their early years are at a stage where they store abundant memories, full of curiosity and cognitive development. Parents should take this time to create reading awareness and cultivate reading habits for children so that they learn to read willingly. Teachers at the Wellington College Bilingual Tianjin nursery have recommended a variety of bilingual summer reading list to make each child's summer holiday more colourful!
