Children should sit in an upright position while reading, keeping the book at a distance of 12 to 15 inches. Keeping the book too close may cause myopia. Form an angle of 45° between the eyes and the hand holding the book.

Keep the book much below so that head is held erect and straight. Small children should have specially designed books (Readers) having bold print and colored illustrations.

Neglect may cause defects in eyesight, chest may become narrow and the spinal cord may get curved and deformed.
