Why Storytelling?
Children love stories. Stories create a magical world that allows each child to use their imagination to pain the scenes in the words they hear. Listening to stories nourishes language growth and has a direct impact on children's reading and writing ability. Stories help us understand others and their cultures especially as we move into a global community and stories are perfect for illustrating and reinforcing character traits in ways that children can understand and appreciate.
