At 4 years’ age, most of the children can not read a complete storybook by themselves. Nevertheless, the books need to be interesting enough for a 4-year-old to want to read or listen to.

Activity books and bedtime stories work really well for this age. Children can learn to explore the world of books through different activities in it. A good activity book can keep a 4-year-old child engaged for hours on end. Learning is a natural process here.

A child at this age is also very keen and interested in knowing and learning about the world around them. Parents can read bedtimes stories or choose from the ever-popular classic tales. The choices are plenty.
