Have a Home Library, Improve Your Child's Cognitive, ICT Skills

New studies have shown that children having a home library at home are likely to have improved literacy and numerical skills when they reach adult hood.

A study led by Dr Joanna Sikora of Australian National University found that the ideal number of books required in a home library is 80-350 books. Altogether 160,000 adults were studies from 2011 and 2015. The study said that exposure to books at home improved the literary, numerical and  Information and Communication (ICT) skills. They were also likely to attain high levels of education extending up to university levels. Early exposure to books could improve cognitive abilities and chances of attaining career success in adulthood.

Having a home library at home may also help reduce time devoted to TV and Video gaming thereby eliminating the chances of acquiring Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders (ADHD) and concentration issues in childhood that may impair learning process in adulthood as well.
