They learn about people, places and events outside their own experience. They are exposed to ways of life, ideas and beliefs about the world which may be different from those which surround them.

7.5% of Singaporeans above the age of fifteen years old are unable to read and write.

Relaxation

Reading a book reduces stress, and is able to put them in a better mood. they can escape from the worries and stresses of the everyday world and spend a while exploring the domain of the author’s imagination.
