Books are life
Books are life. Forget water!
Her uncle asked her last night where she bought her pajamas from and to our amazement, she responded “the clothes store”! I kid you not. This girl’s vocabulary is developing faster than she can say consability (responsibility) and I attribute it all to our reading culture. Granted, her pronunciation of so many words is not the best but the fact that she can articulate and tell a story from beginning to end is impressive. Of course it is filled with “and then” after every sentence but all the same we look forward to her stories.
Also, answering all her questions no matter how many they are (boy can she ask questions!) helps her understand how things work. In turn it enables her remember to use your words when explaining the same. She is only 3 years old. On the flip side, we have to be careful about what we say around her because it can be reported to a third party word for word! I had an embarrassing moment at grandma’s but I will save that for another day. We normally use Swahili when talking about her or about something we would not want her to know which is pretty hilarious. Some day she might learn Swahili and we may need to learn another language then hehe.
Our books collection is wide, from bible stories, to Disney characters, to non-fiction. I have chosen to showcase the bible stories collection as I found it to be an awesome buy. For the price of Ksh 800, you get five bible stories and a solid carrycase, which protects them from wearing our fast and is convenient for carrying them when traveling. The cherry on the cake is the 30 stickers that each book comes with which makes reading all the more fun.
You can get the books at Text Book Centre, The Junction Mall.
