The Importance of Books to Students
Books are essential materials for everyone. We get our knowledge from different kinds of books. We learn things through the use of books and with the aid of our teachers. It is through these materials that we are able to grasp what the things around us are. Of course, in school, we are given textbooks and workbooks. These are the books we need to pay attention to in class. These are different from the books that some students read for leisure. Students who read books even for fun find themselves to have an advantage among their classmates in certain aspects of education.
Reading books beyond the ones assigned in school is important because this opens up different worlds for students. This also helps in sharpening students’ wit and imagination, something that is not simply taught inside the classroom. The importance of books to students also relies on how students make use of them, both inside and outside the classroom. Reading should not be seen as a chore but rather as an activity that enriches both mind and soul, especially if you know the right books to read.
The diversity of books available presents an infinite selection for students. This is why students should truly learn how to value reading beyond the assigned books and texts. To read for leisure isn’t just about having fun and imagining different worlds and situations; it is being able to experience possibilities after possibilities, page by page. This is also where how one’s sense of perspective, worldview and principles in the society are honed. The infinite theme and topics that books hold, both fiction and nonfiction, is a gateway to a better understanding of the world. It is through books that we are able to explore different places even if we’re only staying put in one place.
In the school environment, books are always there because these are the instruction manuals students need when studying. In whatever class, there are books to guide and teach students. Teachers themselves give utmost value to these books because these materials pave the way for how lessons and discussions inside the classroom flow. Of course, it should be noted that inside the classroom, reliance towards books should not be absolute. Books are important because they are presented as guides. It is still up to a good instructor how he or she will delegate information inside the books towards a better way of understanding by the students.
It is essential for students to understand the value of books. In a day and age that technology has succeeded in putting forward different forms of advancement in the society, phones are preferred over books. Despite this, books still remain even in the virtual form, ready to access in different gadgets. This is why no student should have any more why he or she has not read the book assigned to them. in the face of technological innovations, hardcopies of books may actually be given lesser attention but this does not mean to completely embrace the presence of eBooks. This only serves as a challenge for all readers, students or not, to always embrace reading books and to recognize the value of reading, whether in print or on screens. Through this, the appreciation for books would always be present and both writers and readers would continue to build and explore different worlds. In school, students would always have a love-hate relationship with books, whether they like reading or not, not all books are made to please the reader, most come as a challenge and this can be said for both books read for school and for leisure.
