The Importance of Reading and Imagination
Reading is an essential stimulus for the imagination. I think children should be taught from an early age to have reading habits. Read helps kids, develop their language skills. It also helps them learn how to listen. I don't mean that we should all enjoy it, but I think that it is a stepstone in the development of children. It also improves vocabulary and makes you dream. Reading is important because it improve the mind. The mind is a muscle. It needs workout.
Reading today is how we can discover new things. How we know what 's happening in the world, through newspapers and magazines. A person who knows how to read can educate themselves in any area they are interested in. Internet is a great learning tool which demands the ability to read and understand what is read. We live in an era where we are overwhelmed with information, but reading is the main tool to scrutinize the information that we need. When we read, we can go anywhere in the world! We can be a king, or an adventurer, or a princess, or a magician. It's a sea full of possibilities!
Imagination surround us everywhere. According to the dictionary, it is the ability to form new images and sensations in the mind that are not perceived through senses such as sight, hearing, or others. It also says that it is fundamental to integrate experiences and for the learning process.
Every time we watch television, every time we go shopping, every time we dream, imagination is everywhere. It follows us everywhere we go. It's an important part of early education because it helps children to learn and develop the needed values as society members. Imagination is a very healthy development and don´t interferes with a child’s ability to understand the real world.
I believe that imagination and read are the some of the most important parts of our lives. For me, it is! It influences the way I think and how I see the world. It influences my writing, how i draw and the way I go through problems. And I think it's the same with everyone, some more than others, but with everyone.
Creatives of large companies need it to create the most innovative advertising spots. Politicians definitely need someone with imagination to write their speeches. Writers, to write their books. Producers, to produce their movies. Even a simple trader with a small shop, requires imagination to expose their items in the store.
Imagination and reading are two integral components of humanity that we should value more!
