5 Best Books to Read for Kids this Summer Vacation!
There are so many surprises in store for the young and old in summers. It is a grand time for school going kids. Long summer holidays and ample time to laze around, playing indoor games with grandparents and siblings is fun. And the evening summer breezes are pleasant and worth after day’s scorching sun.
When I was in school, we were assigned to write 10 essays in English and Hindi on imaginative topics, 5 books to read of good authors in either of the language and a scrap book of social science and science activity. Our holidays passed beautifully with fun filled activities and we completed our assignments with cheers as it was pure fun to complete the assignments because we had liberty to be away from text books but we gained a lot from the allotted assignments.
When I became Mom, I instilled the habit of reading and writing in my kids. I buy books for them to utilize their holidays in a productive way with fun.
