Do not discount the ability to read. Once the child is able to master reading, the acquisition of knowledge will be a steep learning curve. The way to harness this ability is to introduce books to children. We recommend real books as opposed to e-books as children would tend to be distracted by games on the iPad/ Android devices to focus on the reading task.
As physical bookstores are a dying breed in Singapore, we decided to explore Asia's only online bookstore Noq Store to find the right books for primary school children. With over 14 million books touted as Singapore's cheapest, it will be a great place to dig for hidden treasures.
We set off the task of finding books base on Foundation, Knowledge , Familiarity and Fun. These will be the pillars that will anchor and kick off this literary journey.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle is a critically acclaimed children's books. With the use of simple text and education themes, it introduce countings, days of the weeks, foods and stages of caterpillar growth to the children

Knowledge is power. To feed the child ever growing curious minds, an encyclopedia will be the choice of book. We decided on The New Children's Encyclopedia that is filled with over 9000 facts ranging from geography, physics, biology, chemistry, history, science, and technology. These information would surely give a boost in the knowledge department.

From experiences, it is easier to get a child on a new task if he/she can find something to relate upon. Likewise for reading, it would be good if you can find topics that a child is familiar with. We chanced upon Singapore Children's Favourite Stories. The 11 localised stories should enchant the young readers with their familiarity.

The best way to introduce reading for the young ones is to add a fun element to it. Since Big C is a huge fan of LEGO, the LEGO 2013 Official Annual would be a worthy addition to the arsenal of books for Primary Schools. It is not reading per se, but a book filled with activities. Nonetheless, reading is still required for instructions.
