The Power of Books in Our Life

Leave a comment

My Mommy always encourages me to read story books. She tells me that we can get to know a lot of new things through books. I also love to read books especially when they come with beautiful pictures on them. I start imagining so many things when I read a book. There are also times when Mommy reads me stories during bedtime. However, Mommy tells me that reading has a lot of benefits and there are mentioned below.

Reading aids in brain’s exercise – It helps the brain to strengthen its connections and also build new connections.
Reading helps in improving the concentration level – As reading makes the child sit at one place and focus on the book. This way, they will form a habit of reading for a longer span and also focus on things for more.
Reading helps in knowing so much – When you read a book, you get to know so many new things. Reading opens up a whole new horizon where a child gets to learn as well as improve their imagination skills.
Reading helps in increasing vocabulary – When you read books, you automatically improve your vocabulary as you keep learning new words while you read. This eventually helps you in having a better language skill.
Reading is a lot of fun – Reading is a great way to spend time effectively and, in a lot, a positive way.

As I read new books, I also share my books with my friends. And, later we discuss the book, share our opinion about
the characters in the book. This is a lot of fun when I and my friends discuss books. I also borrow books from my friends and they also suggest me new books based on the kind of books I prefer to read. Then there are books which I just read to gain knowledge. I also go to our school library to get new books and read them after school hours or at home during weekends.

I have a lot of books in my house. Here, I am mentioning a few:

• The Very Hungry Caterpillar – by Eric Carle
• The Hunger Games – by Suzanne Collins
• Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Guide – by J k Rowling
• Charlotte’s Web – by E B White
• Frog and Toad are Friends – by Arnold Lobel
• Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – by Roald Dahl

My Mumma makes me drink milk every day. Though I do like the taste of milk, I wonder why she is so keen on making me drink milk every day. One day, when I asked her, she told me about all the benefits of milk on our body and why it is considered a staple drink for millions of people.

Let’s discuss the various components of milk and their impact on the human body.

Calcium – Milk is a rich source of Calcium which helps in building healthy bones and teeth. It also helps in maintaining bone mass. If the correct amount of Calcium can be maintained throughout the lifetime, one can prevent Osteoporosis.

Protein – Protein builds and repairs muscle tissues and it also serves as a rich source of energy. It is also considered to be the building block of Bones, Muscles, Cartilage, Skin, and Blood.

Potassium – Potassium helps the body to maintain a healthy blood pressure. It helps in regulating the water balance and acid-base balance in the blood and tissues. It also helps in the conduction of nerve impulses.

Phosphorus – Phosphorous is responsible for generating energy and strengthening bones and teeth. It also helps the body in properly using the Carbohydrates and fats. It helps the body to make Protein which is required for the growth, maintenance and repair of cells and tissues.

Vitamin D – Vitamin D helps the body to absorb Calcium and Phosphorous from the food we consume. It helps in maintaining bone health. It also helps in regulating the immune system and the neuromuscular system.

Vitamin B12 – Vitamin B 12 helps in maintaining healthy red blood cells and nerve tissues. It also helps in making the DNA in the body. It also prevents Megaloblastic Anemia.

Vitamin A – Vitamin A helps in maintaining normal vision. It also helps in building the immune system in the body along with maintaining the epithelial cellular integrity.

Riboflavin (B12) – Riboflavin helps the body in converting the food into energy.

Niacin – Niacin helps in metabolising the Sugars and Fatty Acids in the body.

So, when I heard about so much of the benefits of consuming milk on a daily basis, I decided to never miss my glass of milk for the day. I decided to tell all my friends about the benefits milk has for a healthy growth and maintaining good health throughout. So, you should also start drinking milk every day.
