    Providing books to children is essential for their cognitive, emotional, and social development. According to the studies I’ve read and known books help kids develop language skills, expand their vocabularies, and stimulate critical thinking and imagination. It prepares them for the adulthood and environment, from the imaginations and tales of the author’s narration. It’s also a path for their self-discovery, they also offer understanding of cultural understanding and knowledge. Remarkable individuals like Dr. Mae Jemison, the first African American woman to travel in space and Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, a renowned astrophysicist, came from non-privileged backgrounds and became influential scientists due to their love of reading. Dr. Jemison was inspired by science fiction, including “Star Trek,” where the character Lieutenant Uhura, played by Nichelle Nichols, represented diversity and inclusion in science fiction, books do bring many ideas into the minds of the youth, so providing them with this, will really guide our generation to grow with better ideas.
