is a self-written life story. It is different from a biography, which is a life
story written by someone else. Some people may have their own life story
written by someone else because they are not sure if they can write well, but
they are still considered authors because they are providing information.
Reading autobiography can be more interesting than a biography because you are
reading that person’s thoughts rather than someone else’s.
choosing books for children, non-fiction and even the best autobiography books
are forced to take the back seat and are rarely, if ever, the first choice. But
as a genre, the autobiographies and life stories of the characters are
fascinating and captivating. There are books written for everyone – from
historical figures to modern artists, from sports stars to social workers –
which is a great genre to introduce to early readers.
· Real people do
real work: Reading the best autobiography books
introduces children to people who have achieved something great. How did they
do it? He knows from reading biographies.
· Valuable lessons
for kids: One of the main reasons why young children read some of the
best books of all time is that reading about people who have reached heights
teaches children valuable lessons that they can use in life. Values such as
perseverance, forgiveness, hard work are some of the values that are often
mentioned in autobiographies.
· It builds
empathy and understanding for others. The story of a person
who may have lived in another age or with a different background exposes
children to things they may never have experienced. Reading someone else’s
story helps them appreciate their differences or calms our similarities.
· It keeps your
child motivated. Autobiographical material is not just a
calculation of one’s life, in fact I often say that these are self help books.
Reading about others and their diverse ideas and experiences gives your child
more motivation in their life. Your child knows about their struggles and ways
to incorporate their solutions and lessons into own life.
