Cartoons are being accepted as a useful tool for educating children and not just as a form of entertainment. This is evident with the rapid growth of digital education that has seen more and morew schools using tablets, kindles and other electronic dives as teaching aids.
Research, especially as observed by parents and teachers, shows that cartoons help in building cognitive skills in children. These skills are attention, thinking and memory, which are mostly aided by the use of visual objects ,humour and colour.
Cartoons have also been found to increase language skills – listening, speaking,reading and writing – thus enabling children to communicate effectively. Through the repetition of words, fun rhymes and catchy tunes, they learn to listen and mimick words. They eventually learn to associate the words by relating them to the images they see then later on speak.
Aside from aiding in cognitive and language skills, cartoons also help in building on moral behavior. Children tend to associate best with cartoon characters due to their awe-inspiring nature. They therefore find it easier to have role models in these characters and take in moral lessons from them more readily as opposed to those taught by adults. African cartoons often incorporate African culture thus instilling some moral and cultural values in Kenyan children.
