With the advent of gadgets and mobile tools we have these days, encouraging your little ones to read books can be quite a challenge.

So early on, start instilling in them the love for reading (and physical books) and spend more quality time together with these specially handpicked reading materials that we’re pretty sure, your kids will not only love but will also learn a thing or two from.
When we say someone is “intelligent”, we often think of a knowledgeable person with superb abilities to think, reason and problem-solve. As parents, we all wish for our little ones to become the brightest sparks they can be.

This is more true today when many jobs are outsourced overseas so the “knowledge worker” with the skillset is indispensable.
