Oral storytelling is the backbone of our society’s evolution and nothing is going to change that. From folktales to fairytales, stories connect parents to children like a glue. Once kids get a hang of stories from books or otherwise, they just want more and more. Storytelling empowers the kid as much as it empowers the parent in us.
Kids who grow on bedtime stories or otherwise are more imaginative and creative. They can visualize things better and over a period, express themselves better. Best way to teach voice modulation, is through oral story telling. Body language, emotions, expressions, detailing and questioning abilities are best learnt through storytelling.
There’s always room for a story that can transport people to another place. J.K. Rowling
