Picture (s) with book, lessons helps students to be more attentive


No matter how easy it is to explain the lesson in the text book, the students may not pay attention if the picture is not included.

The pictures are very useful to cut the annoyance of the students.

Pictures along with book lessons also help students to be attentive.


In order to prevent the mental growth of children, we do not try to prevent the obstacles that exist in the society, but we do not accept them easily.

For example, we put children in competition with other students to increase the conventional results rather than learning from the institution.

Whether they have creativity or not. And so we impose a lot of unnecessary things on the students.

I buy books that do not stimulate their creativity, but reduce it.

We send them to schools that rely solely on exams, relying on public exam results, and are expensive.

I read the news to the students under the weight of the book.

I don’t read the books of pictures and illustrations which increase their imagination, I don’t even emphasize on them.

Let’s focus on how they can get a grade in the exam without attracting them to such lessons or books.

This is not a new issue, but it was recently brought to the fore in an article published in the New York Times.

The title of the article is ‘Picture Books No Longer a Staple for Children’, which means that picture-rich books are no longer the main topic for readers.

It is said that the importance of book-rich books, excellent illustrations, attractive colors and clear printing seems to be diminishing day by day.


The illustrations in a picture-rich book help children understand what they are reading and help older students to analyze the story or subject matter expressed through pictures.

When they have trouble understanding a topic or story, the pictures provided with that topic speak and the students can easily understand the message there.

Illustration is a powerful way for students to understand something written in a foreign language.

Thus since we are reading English as a foreign language, it is much easier to understand a subject written in English if there are pictures.

Children love art and that is why they are busy with painting for a long time.

Picture-rich books help to practice the words of the language.

As parents, it is our responsibility to introduce them to every new, interesting subject.

There is a kind of rhythm or melody in the picture, there is a rhythm or steps that help the children to read the words.

And then they learn these things, they learn pronunciation.

Expression of a subject in a picture book helps the student to participate in expressing the story and meaning through pictures.

Students older than children also get excited when they understand what is going to happen in front of them through pictures and then pronunciation awareness acquires necessary skills like phonetic awareness, phoenix comprehension and fluency.


A picture-rich book is a multi-sensory that develops children’s minds and stimulates their imagination.

They don’t just listen to the story with their ears, they can see the illustrations, understand the smell, touch the pages of the book.

A picture book or picture in a book is a helpful tool for learning the concept of cause and effect.

Before reading a picture book to children, they need to be told what the key words are there.

Because these words are seen in a story to establish the relationship between cause and effect.

The picture book evokes the feeling of creating stories in the students.

They can know the beginning, middle and end of the story and can relate to age-appropriate topics and dialectical relationships between them.

Pictures completely differently, can create more interactive communication between children and parents.

Among them, there may be talk of pictures, stories and words etc.

which means a kind of interaction which further improves reading comprehension.

Picture books give us the opportunity to tell what we see in the picture, what we saw, what was before, what could have happened, etc.

It also stimulates the imagination.

The picture book presents a unique literary structure where the story merges with the art.

The illustration of the story and the picture is so important here that these two things help to tell the story.

Reading or seeing picture books means discovering art and craft.

Although the book cannot be judged by looking at the cover of a book, children first like the book by looking at the cover of the book.

Therefore children should be attracted with excellent illustrations so that they are attracted to books and this love for books keeps them stuck forever.

Even before reading the book, the children talk and respond to the picture in the book.

Older people are more likely to read illustrated books than others.

Because there is fun here and it is easy to understand.

It’s a kind of break from reading pictures for a long time without it, so it’s interesting and appealing.

Pictures help children discover the realm of imagination and build relationships with different characters and events in the book.

And introducing children to them means showing them the events of the book in real life.

The illustrated book presents a special meaning to the readers and carries a lot of information.

Pictures of going to a farm, pictures of a trip somewhere, pictures of a zoo are shown to a child and the child can get a lot of information without going there, get a rough idea about the place and these ideas are very useful in future life.

Their new ideas, something new, Introduces people and different environments.

These help them to ask questions and learn about new environments and topics, and thus let them know what they really know, not what they know by heart.

They can get background ideas about any subject.

What happens in the case of adults is that it helps them to think critically about a subject.

By looking at the picture, they can guess, tell about the future.

Using the picture, they can introduce the children to different symbols, give clues to the subject which is the picture.

Not possible without it.

The picture book is a wonderful opportunity for interaction between adults and children.

It is another critical element of a lifelong love of books. I can imagine. .

Photo books enhance students’ visual thinking skills.

They can match what they see in the picture with a lot of things in the real world, with the concept of reason.

Picture books introduce the child to art or art.

Experts say that even if you take a child to an art gallery, you can’t achieve it.

Illustrations or illustrated books are not just a kind of decoration, they strengthen the events and emotions of the story.

The picture book teaches us how to be an attentive listener.

Karen Loss of Candlewick Press says that when a reader sees and reads a picture book from a picture, his imagination is filled with unknown and unseen objects, which makes him creative.

This was stated by a psychologist named Richard Gentry.

When adults are not around the children to say something, to explain, then the picture speaks to them, the picture often answers their many questions.

The picture sows the seeds of writing skills in the students.

Reading books through pictures is a kind of fun, a kind of joy, a kind of joke.

And it is through joy that education has to be acquired and done.
