Krishna Kumar (1986) begins by defining what reading is. He espouses exposure to books even before children can decipher the alphabet. According to him, unless a child makes sense of what he/she reads, and relates it to something else, one cannot call it reading. He defines reading as “a process of finding meaning in written words” (Kumar: 1986).
