Influence of Literature on Children
"The best way to introduce your child to the possibilities of reading is to pave the way for them towards reading the books," said Prof. S. Sivadas. He said that instead of adding literature to science, transforming science into literature has a far greater influence on its readers, especially children. He also advised that teachers should read more children`s books to introduce the kids to literature. "Children`s literature is far more powerful than we realize," added the professor.
In the session, the publishing director of Tulika Books, Radhika Menon, mentioned many of the children`s books that Tulika Books publishes. Writer and publisher Richa Jha explained her journey as a writer and publisher in recent years and how she made her child the character in her stories.
