Stories are infinite, only limited by our imagination.
“It gives us the ability to feel empathy for people we’ve never met, living lives we couldn’t possibly experience ourselves, because the book puts us inside the character’s skin” Ann Patchett

Early Literacy Development
“If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.” ― Albert Einstein
Storytelling plays an important role in Early Literacy development. It acts as an essential building block to literacy. Children’s imaginations are further enhanced through listening to fairy tales. You can engage children to discuss how the fantasy land or amazing worlds from these stories can be different or the same from our real world. Through such interaction with your children, it will help them express their ideas easily.
Studies also show that regular storytelling activities can help broaden a child’s vocabulary.
