Introducing stories at a very young age has a great deal of advantages. Stories help improve your child’s verbal communication, vocabulary, listening skills, creative thinking and visualization. But, most of all, it is a fantastic way to impart moral values to you child.
1. There is a huge selection of stories you can choose from to narrate to your child. Find out what her preferences are, about the kind of characters she likes, about the kind of stories she likes. This will keep her excited for the activity.
2. Stories from Panchatantra, Tenali Raman, Akbar and Birbal, are to name a few, some of the best stories that have brilliant morals to teach about. Your narration also plays a vital role here. Make sure you keep her involved by dramatizing the story by means of modulation and sounds.
