Discover the art of storytelling

I can hardly imagine that reading can be boring to some children, while having thousands

of beautifully illustrated and fun written children books out there! However, there are

some little boys and little girls who are not crazy-in-love with books (that’s ok, too!), so this

post might give you an idea (if you’re looking for one) how to encourage your little ones

to fall in love with books and reading – through storytelling with story boxes.

Story boxes

I love children books, I’ve always have and I always will. I enjoy very much reading to my 4 yrs

old son who is already a big fan of picture books. Reading to our little ones is a lifetime investment

in our children and what can be more fun than acting out the story while sharing it with your kids?

Storytelling with story boxes is definitely more fun, both for the little children and for the storyteller.

Story boxes make storytelling more interactive and hands-on, they helps children develop early

language skills, re-storytelling and imagination.
