The habit of reading is considered as one of the most priced hobbies. In the day and age of social media, the habit of reading is slowly disappearing. However, it will be interesting to know that a 5-year-old girl has set a world record for reading books. In a recent turn of events, Kiara Kaur’s love for reading has become the talk of the town.
The Indian-American girl recently entered London’s World Book of Record and Asia Book of Record for reading 36 books non-stop for 1-5 minutes. This means that little Kiara read continuously for a little under two hours.
The record was set on February 13, 2021, and the World Book of Records called her ‘child prodigy’. The reports claim that at a very young age Kiara became a vicious reader. She currently lives in Abu Dhabi can read just about anywhere, be it in the car or in the restroom.
One of her teachers noticed her reading diligently in the library and recognized her passion. Kiara told that reading from books is extremely enjoyable as one can carry books anywhere they like. The only problem with reading on phones or watching a video is that one can’t read if there is no internet connectivity.
The little one also added that she loves to read that has colorful pictures and big texts. Some of her favourite reads include Cinderella, Alice In Wonderland, Little Red Riding Hood among others.
The reports claim that it was Kiara’s grandfather who imbibed the habit of reading in her. The proud mother gasped by saying that her daughter would listen to his stories on WhatsApp calls for hours. Thus, grandpa has a great impact in Kiara’s upbringing and her love for books.
Little Kiara Kaur dreams of becoming a doctor when she grows up and her mother would be more than happy to support her for whatever she dreams of.
