The Importance of storytelling

As parents and caregivers, we all dream of success for our children - and storytelling and reading provides one of the ways to help fulfill these dreams.

Literacy skills are a strong predictor of future academic success in all subjects – and children who regularly read and hear engaging stories, in languages they understand, are well equipped and motivated to learn to read and write. This finding is backed up by significant body of research that reinforces the link between reading for pleasure and improved learning outcomes for children.
