That's Interesting...

That's Interesting..., originally uploaded by ZackTwin.
This photo was taken at ZeeO Village Primary School. When we arrived there, it was a break time and all students are reading interestingly books.

Small and untidy library, torn and old books cannot stop their desire to read.

When I view this photos, what Sayar Aung Thin, a well-respected and famous Burmese writer,  told us came in my mind. He told us that

"One's reading habit doesn't happen once you give a very good book to him. The habit has to be nurtured since young.

First you give cartoons to children when they are about 3-5 years. Children may not be able to read but they will read drawings and start having thoughts and imaginations in their mind.

From 6-9 years old, children will pick up cartoons with descriptions and narrations.
After that they will slowly change what they read...
Next step, children will read books writing about supernatural, then adventures, after that romance, and life...

That's the way of nurturing children to love reading books..."
