5 Key benefits of storytelling to kids

Values – Storytelling is a fantastic way to help instil values. Themes like, sharing, friendship, forgiveness and self-worth can all be conveyed in a fun and easy to grasp way, through relatable characters. We love The Conscious Bedtime Story Club in particular (http://www.consciousstories.com/) 

Improve communication and memory – Being read to has proven to have a wealth of health benefits for children, including memory stimulation as well as listening skills. Often kids like to repeat phrases back or discuss the story. We love ‘A Little, Aloud, For Children’  by Angela MacMillan.

Help overcome hard time – When kids remember seeing their favourite characters overcome difficulties and problem solve in their stories, they are better able to put those skills to use when they encounter challenging situations.

Imagination and creativity – Reading stories can ignite a child’s imagination and encourage creative thinking. Before long they will be creating new adventures for the characters on the page.

Bonding – A bedtime story is wonderful way to come together as a family at the end of the day. A special time for everyone to look forward to.
