I Read Too | Why do Children Books appeal to Adults? | #BlogchatterHalfMarathon

I don’t think that I have ever talked about my reading life so extensively. The previous post was about my reading comfort zone. Today, I want to share my low key obsession with Children’s books.

I started reading when I was very young. Like extremely young. But I don’t think I have ever grown out of the excitement of reading a children’s book. I recently read Sudha Murthy’s Grandma’s Bag Of Stories, after I borrowed it from my five-year-old nephew and I absolutely loved it!

Why do Children Books appeal to Adults?

My first ever classic novel was Alice in Wonderland. I read the abridged version when I was 7. I have read the book thrice since then and I can read it again!

For me, reading it again transports me to the time when life was so good – without much struggle. The vibrant memories of drawing classes, pretty crafts that I used to make and of amazing fun times with family when everyone was young and free – I relive them when I read those books again.

The gripping adventures told in a cute manner is another reason why I still love reading children’s books.

Most importantly, children’s books tell a story of a life that is pretty difficult to achieve right now. A life of simplicity and contentment is difficult to live when you are a part of the rat race!

Also, these books come with life lessons that we tend to forget as we grow up. A nice reminder of an empathic life – that is how I see these books for children.
