The Value of Books
Books answer questions, but they also create questions. Books help us reflect on right and wrong, books can offer guidance amd help us determine our life priorities, our own set of values.
Books profoundly expand our vocabulary, books are interactive, they demand that children think.
Books show us the inner workings of multiple perspectives and let us know there is more than one way to view the world.
Books strengthen our self confidence and help us determine where we want to go.
Books develop critical thinking skills.
A book is read by an individual. It has no laugh track or musical score that emotionally primes a reaction. You alone decide what you think about a book and its content with no one leaning over your shoulder telling you how to think.
With a library of 3000 books to choose from at ENS Onegino, the children have an expansive choice of what to bring home and share with their family. A love of books and knowledge is vital to any child’s learning and development journey. We are so happy to be a part of it.
