Books are a great way to encourage a child’s imagination. Kids books have long been a great source for education and fantastic stories, but they can also be a creative outlet for children themselves. For a child to participate in the creation of a story it gives them not only a great experience and sense of accomplishment, but also a wonderful keepsake they can be proud of. By reading these books to your children and showing them that kids can write books too, you are encouraging literacy and creativity to an entire new level! Here are the top 5 books available written by kids.
