The Importance of Storytelling

The Importance of Storytelling

Whether or not you consider yourself a storyteller, relaying stories is a natural part of our day.  Participants learn about the value of storytelling, from passing down culture and values, to connecting with loved ones and friends.  In this session, we will practice fun techniques that help develop a child's language and literacy skills.

Sample Tips for Storytellers

  • Tell stories about what life was like when you were your child's age.
  • Re-tell a story you already know well, like a fairy tale or a classic children's story.
  • Ask your child to review their day.
  • After watching a TV program or movie, make up a story with your child about what happens to the characters the next day.
