Why Books are Important
Even before children learn to speak, they are absorbing everything they hear. Reading to children at a young age helps them to speak, cultivate their imagination, build their language comprehension, and read early themselves. Exposure to Armenian books at a young age sets the foundation for understanding and speaking Armenian. However, this can only happen if we have the books available.
Why Board Books?
Board books are durable. Durability means that kids can touch, feel, and interact with a book without tearing the pages. They also have rounded corners and are safe for children to handle. Additionally, board books should be engaging, age-appropriate, educational, and full of vibrant illustrations. Because there are no similar published books like this in Armenian, young Armenian children will be exposed to the Armenian language and culture through this book.
