The Importance of Storytelling

Storytelling is the oldest form of education. When children hear a story told, rather than read, they enter another realm of communication. Emotions can be safely shared and recognised using story characters and events. Children, particularly, love stories made up by a familiar adult, however simple: they appreciate the gift of sharing the imagination. Overcoming a fearsome giant using skill and wit shows children that they too can overcome their own challenges, and in doing so they develop strength of personality. Josie Felce - Storyteller

Every day people tell stories to each other in conversation.
To learn these skills by telling and listening to others develops social confidence.

Traditional stories have a wealth of mythology that lies behind our language: the Norse myths give us the days of the week, for instance. Stories from other countries can give us an insight into their culture in an inviting and appealing way. Stories are a feast offered to us so we can be nourished in many ways.
