In order to develop these competences , reading books is the most effective method.The habit of reading is a process beginning from childhood and continues lifetime.When the children begin reading at early ages, their creative intelligence develop, learn analytic thinking and their vocabulary enhances.It is crucial to meet children with libraries beginning from preschool ages to provide suatainable healthy development, improve producing idea skills and communication competences.
